Add IDrive 360 as a safe sender - Whitelist instructions

As most Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide some type of spam filters, chances are that emails from IDrive 360 may get mistakenly sent to your Spam folder. In order to avoid this, we request you to whitelist IDrive 360 and add it to your trusted list of senders, contacts or address book. If you do not see an email from IDrive 360 in your inbox due to the filtering by ISPs, check for the email in your spam folder, open the email and mark it as ‘not spam’.

To add IDrive 360 as a safe sender, click the link to any of the below ISPs or email clients.

Gmail, Hotmail Live, Windows Live and MSN, Yahoo, AOL, AOL Web Mail and AT&T
