This may not be specifically for email abuse, but if they have a Google+ profile associated with that email address you can report them. On any user's Google+ profile page, just under their photograph on the left hand side, there is a drop-down for "More actions". one of those is "Report this user". I've never reported anyone, so I don't know what sort of ...

Only a Google engineer can answer for certain, but... Based on what I've seen over the years, it's the manual marking as spam or "not spam" that provide the signals to the spam algorithm. This Gmail blog post, for instance, thanks users for using the "Report Spam" and "Not Spam" buttons; no mention is made of clearing the spam bucket. Nor does it get ...

Shorter answer. In my experience not having a PTR (reverse DNS) record set for the IP address of a server is the number one way email gets flagged as SPAM on services like Gmail and even AOL. Related but if you don’t have an SPF (Sender Policy Framework) record set for the domain name, that won’t help anything at all so you should have that set as well. ...

You can't "turn this off" as far as I know, however, you can set up a filter that automatically archives, or even deletes these informative messages. Personally, I archive all these messages and apply a label, so I can easily find them again if I really need to. Gmail used to prefix the subject line with "Message left on server:" which made it easy to ...

Short answer Carefully consider to file a report with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (www.ic3.gov), a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National White Collar Crime Center. Long answer The following quote, from https://support.google.com/mail/answer/190735?hl=en, is regarding impersonation, but this also could apply to ...

You can't. Email addresses are easily, and regularly, spoofed. Heck, I've received spam that seemed to come from myself. Google uses heuristics on the content and the headers to determine if something is spam. Even though you have some content, it's likely not enough to get a good score. So, good on you for wanting to help get rid of this junk, but unless ...

With Gmail as-is, no, there is no option to filter messages so that they're permanently deleted automatically. Frankly, I think this is a good thing, as Gmail filters can be very powerful. Could you imagine the kerfuffle if people had filters deleting messages from addresses that they actually wanted to receive without informing them or allowing them to ...

I found an easier solution that doesn't require Apps Script: While the GMail UI removes the "Not spam" button after clicking "Select all conversations that match this search", it leaves a "Move to Inbox" button, and using that automatically removes the Spam pseudo-label. Combining this with a temporary label just for these messages, I was able to move them ...

If it's all correctly going to your spam folder there's nothing you should do. Google's anti-spam algorithms are working. There are occasional bursts like this, where spammers find a new technique to get around some spam filters. It'll probably be short-lived. Once spam fighters upstream from Google put the kibosh on it and improve their filters and/or get ...

This makes no sense at all, but somehow the Chrome LastPass extension is triggering the spam filter. I tested this by opening an incognito window and performing the identical edit, which succeeded. After that, I disabled all plugins and enabled them until I found the culprit. I guess I'll have to temporarily disable LastPass whenever I edit Wikipedia ...

When you add someone to a board they have to accept before seeing your cards. They will receive a notification that you have invited them, and you will receive a notification when they have accepted. Those invitations should also be in your board's history. You can change the settings of a board to only allow team admins to add members: Show menu > Settings ...

The suggestion you quoted cannot be implemented: Apps Script can move threads to Trash or Spam but cannot delete them permanently. Source: a Google employee's answer on Stack Overflow: It is not possible, by design, to delete an email permanently using GmailApp. If you wonder why this restriction is in place, imagine that you made an error coding your ...

To prevent the newsletter from going to Spam in the future I recommend adding it to a Bundle. You can automatically add emails to a bundle based on criteria like who the email is from or keywords in the email. Open Inbox or the Inbox app. In the top left corner, tap or click the Menu Menu. Tap or click the label you want to bundle. Tap or click Settings ...

There is a suggestion to change the settings below... taken from another site. Right, this is a new spam technique - At least a dozen of my google groups have been spammed this way already. If you reject the spam messages, it sends an annoying rejection message to all the members of the group! To prevent it go to Manage > Settings > Moderation and ...

Gmail spam filters use complex algorithms that consider sender address, content but also by other parameters like volume of messages sent to Google. You could help the algorithm to work better by marking the spam messages as spam and by removing from spam the messages that are not. To learn more about how Gmail handles spam checkout Spam and suspicious ...

Just select the message, and click the Not Spam button that appears at the top and bottom of your current view. Unmarking a message will automatically move it to your inbox.

The thing to do with a message that's a false-positive for spam is to use the "Not Spam" button while viewing the message. This will put the message back into "Inbox" and, more importantly, will send a signal to the anti-spam algorithms so that they can be improved. To ensure that such messages don't get marked as spam in the future, create a filter and use ...

You can do this with a script. I tested it by labeling a few messages in my spam folder and executing it. (I don't have 16000 messages to test on...) function removeFromSpam() { while (true) { var threads = GmailApp.search("in:spam label:feedback", 0, 50); if (threads.length>0) { GmailApp.moveThreadsToArchive(threads); } else { ...

This a bug whatever is doing the validation. RFC 822 theoretically allowed separate CR and LF characters, which are not line ends, but RFC 2822 removes this feature. RFC 2822 section 2.3 says "CR and LF MUST only occur together as CRLF; they MUST NOT appear independently in the body." What the programmer did is RFC 2822 complaint and your version is not. As ...
