The following steps will find e-mail that Gmail marks as spam and prevent it from going to the Spam "folder". This will then allow your your desktop client to download the e-mail and perform the spam filtering. This type of arrangement is often necessary if spammers send out e-mail using keywords that are legitimate for certain industries such as e-commerce, ...

I THINK it's this: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#spam Then you'll need to login. Tested it while logged into gmail and then in an Incognito Chrome window (it prompted me to sign into Gmail. After signing in, I had to click the link again to get to the Spam Folder. And of course, you can type : In:Spam to get to the spam folder.

Okay, this question is still getting a lot of views so I figure it's a good idea to post up the solution for my case at least. What was happening, is regardless of my Gmail settings, Windows Live Mail was taking over and moving emails back into my spam, even if I used the "Never send to spam" filter as recommended by AI E. To this this, I took the ...

You could create a filter, if you can find a search that will hit only the emails you want, and have all matching messages deleted? Or at least "never send to spam" but instead moved to a special folder if you want to review them too. I thought that maybe some characters that never show up in your language like ф peraps? But apparently Gmail doesn't search ...

Locate the page from which you can update the DNS records. You may need to enable advanced settings. Create a TXT record containing this text: v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all. Publishing an ...

I'm not at all sure that Google's spam filters would be triggered by an import. SPAM filtering is normally done at the receipt time. There are, however, Linux tools you can train with a bunch of emails, still don't think you would be able to use that to clean out the existing MBOX though. You could instead try opening the file in Thunderbird or another ...

There's probably not a way to answer this. At least, not by us mere mortals. The algorithms Google uses to identify possible spam are secret (and for good reason). They're also constantly adjusting them to address new threats and to prevent false positives. More than likely, a recent adjustment to the algorithm is making the messages you receive look more ...

Plus addressing is also known as address tags. How the local part (i.e. the user name of username@domain) is used and if there are any special meanings is dependent on the mail server used. qmail and Courier Mail Server support "-" as an address tag and Postfix allows you to configure an arbitrary separator. I started using "-" when I run my own qmail ...

Not really, no. The only way is to use a unique email address on every single website and then see where (else) that address gets used. Some email providers let you use extended addressing where you append + and some string to your email username. For instance, if the CEO of Google wanted to know if his email address was being leaked by Yahoo, he might sign ...

It's not just one place where you need to do changes, but this is roughly how you can avoid being spammed with unwanted messages from Facebook: Step 1: Go in the Settings page and check out the Privacy and Timeline pages to customize the privacy level so that you don't allow anyone else to perform activities on your profile (tag you in pictures and videos, ...

Maybe you're receiving invites not because your "almost registration" to Facebook, but because your friend are using your email with this tool inside Facebook to "find friends" (sorry if it's not the exact name of the tool, I have it in Spanish) I received a few of them also, when I didn't have a Facebook account. And the invites last a lot! When I finally ...
