The reason Gmail's built-in filters won't work in this situation is because they can't be applied to the "X-Forwarded-For" header. That header is where the "via" domain info is stored. My solution was to use a Google Apps Script to check my inbox every few minutes and automatically filter out messages sent via a specific domain. It actually works really ...

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?

The site Unroll.me can help you unsubscribe from marketing email databases that you have unwittingly signed up for. Some email accounts aren't supported, but Gmail is so you'll be fine.

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

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 ...
