In this tutorial we will show you how to add / remove an email address, domain, or subdomain to your Allowed Senders list in your McAfee Control Console. This will whitelist them, and allow their emails to bypass the spam filter.

For example, you may be corresponding with a specific company and want to accept any email from the domain, or you may just want to add 1 email address of a person you are expecting an email from. Adding them to the spam filter ensures that the emails they send will not be flagged, and stopped from getting to your Inbox.

 Access the Allowed Senders List:

Before you can add or remove email addresses, you must first login and access the Allowed Senders list, this is easy to do.

  1. Login to your McAfee Control Console.
  2. Click the Allowed Senders tab.
    Selecting the Allowed senders tab in the McAfee Control Console


Add an Email Address to the Allowed Senders List:

  1. In the field next to the New button, enter the email address, domain, or subdomain you want to allow messages from, then click the New Button.

    McAfee states in their help guide: 

    The following values are allowed in list entries:

    Domain Name - qualified domain name (for example, or subdomains (for example, *@* allows emails from any subdomain of the XYZ domain, such as This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ). If you know you want to allow all emails from this domain, then use this option instead of typing in each email address associated with the domain

    Sender Address - complete email address (for example, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) or partial address (for example, user* or *

    whitelisting an email address
    You will now see the email address, domain, or subdomain listed in the window.

    Selecting address to be removed
  2. Click the Apply button to save your changes. Now, the address, domain, or subdomain is removed from the Allow list.
