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 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

That's my .procmailrc with irrelevant parts removed SENDER=`formail -c -x Return-Path` SENDMAILFLAGS="-oi -f $SENDER" :0 * ^X-Spam-Level: \*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\* | formail -A 'Delivered-To: spam@gmail.com' | \ $SENDMAIL -oi myname@gmail.com :0 ! myname@gmail.com The number of asterisks after X-Spam-Level corresponds to the SpamAssassin score (12 for ...

Make sure you have configured your SPF records properly. To create an SPF record for a domain: Log in to the administrative console for your domain. 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 ...

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 { ...

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 ...

I'm not sure how you asked Travelocity to remove your emails, but personally I would both email them to a relevant contact email like contact@travelocity.com or try to login to the site and change your notifications settings with the credentials your office administrator used. But, if it all fails go to the email and: Click on the down-pointing arrow and ...

I ended up using Thunderbird, clicking Ctrl-A in the spam folder and save.

If you're using Gmail, you can create a filter so these messages don't hit your inbox. If you don't want any emails from YouTube, you can search for it and then click Create filter. You can add additional criteria on the next page, confirming the results before creating the filter.

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 ...

What I did was changing my handle. I just couldn't handle it all!! Only thing I'm sad about is that I had such a unique handle I didn't even realized it before I changed it - now I can't change back because it was only 5 characters long. :( I was just going to "move it" elsewhere.

You can create your own simple CAPTCHA by inserting a multiple choice question like this: How much is three plus seven? ( ) Don't know ( ) 9 ( ) 10 ( ) 11 Use the "Go to page based on answer" option to jump back to the page where the CAPTCHA is, or to the next page in the event the humanoid filling the form gets ...

Contact your ISP and see if they can/will do anything about it. Buy a domain from a registrar that provides email services that include a mail server on which you can do sender address verification (either you have full admin control over the SMTP server and can install / configure as you wish, or their provided solution allows you, or them, to set up ...

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 ...
