emails permitted from only certain people

How do I set parental controls to limit incoming/outgoing emails to specific family members only?

Re: emails permitted from only certain people

I'm assuming you have set up a secondary account for a youngster, is that right?  If so, from your primary account, click on "My Account" at the top of the page.  It will ask you to sign in again.  Then click on "Users and Preferences" at the top of that page.  You will see tabs for any accounts you have.  Click on the one for the child, and then click on "Email Settings".  Scroll down the page to the "Safe List".  When you use the Safe List, that account will only get emails from addresses or domains you manually enter.

 

There is no way to restrict outgoing emails in any email program I know of, including Comcast.
