Here are some tips for you when using our eCommunications and eStatements services.
Whitelisting to receive our emails
Many internet service providers have spam filters to give you greater control over the emails you receive and to help you avoid junk email.
Unfortunately, these filters may block emails you wish to receive from us. To avoid this, you will need to add email@example.com to your email address book and update your anti-spam program whitelist or filters.
An email whitelist is a list of contacts that the user deems are acceptable to receive email from and should not be sent to the trash folder.
Spam filters can contain sender whitelists and blacklists, as well as key words to look for in emails. If a spam filter keeps a whitelist, mail from the email addresses, domains, and/or internet provider addresses listed will always be allowed.
Follow the steps outlined to whitelist us in the more commonly-used email providers. Please note that these instructions may not be exact and you’ll still need to refer to your provider’s manual or help files if necessary.
Hotmail - how to whitelist
Yahoo mail - how to whitelist
Gmail - how to whitelist
Microsoft Outlook (most versions) - how to whitelist

How do I apply to receive eCommunications?
Can I nominate more than one email address?

How do I update my email address?
To change your designated email address, you can contact us or do it yourself via online banking as follows:
Can I ask a question by replying to the email address on the eStatement I receive?
No. If you have questions about your account, you’ll need to contact us.
I don’t seem to be receiving any email notifications – what’s happening?
If you’re not receiving your email notifications and we have the correct email address, it’s possible that your email provider designates our eStatement notifications as junk mail and sends these to a ‘junk mail’ folder. You’ll need to contact your local internet service provider and ask for instructions on how to allow notices from firstname.lastname@example.org to be on their ‘safe’ list or to be delivered directly to your Inbox.
You can also read our tips on whitelisting and anti-spam programs to ensure emails from us don’t end up in your ‘junk mail’ or ‘spam’ folders.
