    Tips
    To whitelist a full email address in Gmail, type the information in the format [email protected]
    To whitelist an entire domain in Gmail, type only the domain in the From field in the format @example.com. This whitelists every email address from the example.com domain, no matter who sends it.
    If you want to whitelist more than one email address or domain, you don’t have to repeat this step for each one. Instead, put a break between the separate accounts, such as [email protected] | [email protected] |@example2.com.
