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 one to suffer from this, Gmail doesn't filter these mails.

I made a simple test case, created an email on Gmail and contacted one of the spammers 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?

    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?

  • 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

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