Trying to set up safe email account for child.


I've been trying to figure out a way to set up an email account which will only let in emails from addresses I have whitelisted & stop all others (which will invariably be spam).

I've tried creating a rocketmail account (??yahoo) but cant see any way to do this.

Can anyone help me out with this or suggest another service which would fit the bill?

I'm with vodafoneathome as my ISP & they only provide a basic service with no bells & whistles like this.

Cheers for that.

Found out that hotmail has the option to block send every email except those "whitelisted" to the junk folder & then you can set that to delete junk immediately.

Seems to work a treat.

They will be supervised while using it (only 6 & 8) but just didnt want "double your manhood" emails popping in as they compose one to Grandma & Grandma :-)

I already use Kaspersky which has parental control.

They seem to be managing well with the Hotmail & filtering seems to work as it should.
