do I manage the list of safe email senders?
do I review email from non approved senders?
Log on to the parental center using
your email address and password.
Select an email address from the
drop down box. Then click on pending
email. Click on the email that you
wish to review. If the email is appropriate
for your child to see, you can click on the 'this
is not spam' button. Only do this if you wish to
add the sender to your child's trusted email list
and allow future emails to pass straight to your
child's inbox folder. As a default, we will still
send an email to the pending folder if it contains
an attachment (photo, movie clip, etc). This is because
it is possible for spammers to spoof a sender's email
address. The effect is that an email that appeared
to come from a trusted sender could in fact be a
spammer. To transfer the email to your child's inbox,
go to the pending email page. Select the check box
next to the email and click move. This will move
the message to your child's inbox. They will then
be able to view the email.
I view the inbox of each of my children's email accounts?
Log on to the parental center using your email address
and password. Select an email address from the drop
down box. Then click on inbox. This will take you
to your child's inbox folder.
