GMAIL and thread notifications going to spam
« on: July 08, 2020, 01:02:00 PM »
I am seeing some (not all) of my thread notification emails going into my gmail spam bucket. I've been marking them as "not spam" but the situation persists. Not the end of the world, but I'm wondering if others with gmail are also seeing this (or you might check your spam folder to discover that you are...).

I use gmail and mine are going to my inbox properly.

You might consider creating a rule that ensures they land in your inbox and bypasses the spam folder.

I already have a filter that puts them into a WxForum folder. Even with that, some (including the one that alerted me to your post) still go in spam.

I'll look to see if there are additional knobs I can put on that filter.

I just checked the wxforum.net email server (74.208.29.36) against DNSBL lists  and we're not on any at present.

Yeah it's not a blanket thing. I'll pay more attention to see if I can figure out what it might be keying on.

Mine have also been going into my G-Mail spam folder . Even if I click " not spam " the next one ends up in my spam folder . From what I have read it has something to do with the last Windows 10 update . I know Windows 10 isn't G Mail but that's what some of the articles are blaming it on . Also Google say's it's been fixed but not for me .

I'm on a Mac. It takes jumping through some hoops to run Win 10 on one (it is possible), but I haven't jumped through those.
