Occasionally, Gmail thinks that a legitimate message is a phishing scam. When I open it to verify it's legit and mark it "Not spam", a banner appears at the top warning me that, "This message may not be from whom it claims to be." It also won't display any images. I mark it as "Not spam" to put it in my Inbox, but that's not good enough for Gmail. It knows better than I do and still displays that banner and will not let me display images.

Is there anyway to get Gmail to back off and let me see those images?

At the top-right of the message, next to the reply button, there's a menu button. If you click it, there will be a 'report not phishing' option. Click this, and the phishing flag should be cleared.

  • Now, how did I miss that?
