How to save your ‘safe sender’ list in MS Outlook

Whenever you need to re-install Outlook, the list of safe senders you created in the older version will not be included in the PST file. As a result, you will have to re-create the safe sender list again, which can be a tedious task.
When you create a PST file to transfer your data to the new Outlook, the safe sender list will not be included by default. You will have to transfer this information separately; this can be done by exporting the data to a text file. To do so, click on ‘Tools’, then select ‘Options’. Here, under the ‘Preferences’ tab, you will see the ‘Email’ option. Now select the ‘Junk Email’ option and select the second tab, ‘Safe Senders’. You will see all the email addresses that you have added to the ‘Safe Sender’ list. Select them and click on the option ‘Export to file’ and save it as a text file. When you re-install Outlook, you will have to follow the same steps, but instead of ‘Export to file’, you will need to select the ‘Import from file’ option.
