Inbound emails can sometimes get filtered into spam, junk, or trash folders. Check these first if an email from Hootsuite (like a verification email) is not arriving to your inbox.
To ensure you receive all Hootsuite emails in your inbox, whitelist our addresses in your email client and in your firewall or other security settings (or ask your IT team to do this).
Whitelisting means marking an address as a known source that is safe to accept emails from. Depending on your email service, you can whitelist by adding the address to your Contacts, or to an Approved/Allowed/Safe Senders list.
Contact your email provider directly if you need assistance with whitelisting.
Hootsuite email addresses and domains to whitelist
- email@example.com (password reset emails, login verification emails, invoices, Hootsuite notifications)
- firstname.lastname@example.org (webinar access codes, webinar emails)
- mailinglist.hootsuite.com (newsletters, mailing list content)
- email@example.com (help ticket emails)
- o1.hootmail.hootsuite.com (auto-emails like analytics reports)
The following domains should also be whitelisted in your firewall and security services to ensure that all Hootsuite products function for you as intended.
