the problem I am having is the ability to fight spammers who add unsubscribe from this mail list by clicking here into their spam emails, turns out I am not the only suffer form this, GMail doesn't filter these mail as well.

I made a simple test case, created an email on GMail and contacted one the spammer asking him to add my address to his list such a bad idea :P

and Google thought that I am already subscribed to that list and put it in my inbox. These kind of spammers use many accounts to send their spam which make this job much harder.

How do I report these spammers, and block them in GMail or mail mail servers?

What is the fastest way to do that?

This question came from our site for pro webmasters.

I'm not sure what your problem is here. Is it that GMail let the e-mail into your inbox despite it being flagged as spam or from an address on your blacklist? – ChrisF Jan 13 '11 at 12:07
My idea is 'repost spam' isn't enough , for example one spammer changes its email address from noreply@example.com to noreply2@example.com and still able to send spams to gmail + local mail server – tawfekov Jan 13 '11 at 15:44

Use the "Report spam" button and won't worry. In time, Gmail figures out who is who.
