I create a Gmail filter that makes emails coming from certain email ID (say abc@gmail.com) skip my inbox and go to "trash". Now suppose Gmail's spam detector finds that a message from this address looks like spam. Then where shall such a mail be sent - "trash" or "spam" folder?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

If a message matches your filters, those will always take precedence, I believe.

That's why you can also opt to "mark it as Non-spam".
