How to White-list emails in Gmail

We live in a world of algorithms and while they are great a lot of the time, sometimes they can work against us and filter emails we actually want to see. (Try checking your spam folder and see if there are any emails you want in there)

The instructions below are to help you create a safe-list of emails you want to receive regardless of the automated algorithms.

(1) Click the gear icon at the upper right-hand side of Gmail, and choose Settings from the list.
