My Gmail Priority Mailbox was working pretty good until about a week ago.
I have a filter as per the following:
Matches: from:(firstname.lastname@example.org) subject:(Sample Subject)
Do this: Apply label "MyLabel", Never send it to Spam, Mark it as important
The last item in the filter (Mark it as important) is never being applied. Even when I manually mark it as important, the next email matching the criteria is again ignored. This filter has been in place for many months and used to work. Now this problem has been going on for at least a week and for dozens of messages.
The matching portion of the filter is working since the labels are being applied... but they're never marked as important despite being told "Always mark it as important" in the filter's settings.
Is anyone else seeing this happen or know about this being a new Gmail bug? Are there any workarounds? Any information appreciated.
It's still happening and I've had no luck finding a link for reporting Gmail bugs to Google. I read something at Google about reporting bugs and they said that one should just post their problem in the Google Groups forum. That's useless it seems.
Just reported this on 8/9/11 at Noon CST to:
I'll post any relevant follow-ups.
