    Hello,

    Is your Hotmail not getting email from one or your contacts or services?

    Here is an example that shows how to add Twitter to your safe senders list.

    First, go to the top right of your inbox, click the Gear, and select More Mail Settings:

    Next, click Safe and Blocked senders:

    Next, click Safe Senders:

    Last, type in the address, in this example notify@twitter.com, that you want to whitelist:

    Click the Add to List button and it will appear on the right side column.

    To get back to your Inbox click the Outlook logo in the top left of your screen.

    The settings menu has changed slightly since the last post.

    If you go to your Options menu, the navigation to the Safe Senders screen is here:
