emails from the Forum

Post by Alto »

....are all now going into my spam box - I've noticed the subject header has changed. No matter how many times I 'tell' Google mail it's not spam, each new message goes to spam......



Am I alone in this experience?

Firefox browser, Gmail

I do what I do because I want to, and because I can....

Doesn't mean I know what I'm doing, though!

Hi all.

Every email I get from the Forum goes into my Spam folder - gmail is constantly informed it's safe and not spam - and yet they still fly in.

Am I the only one having this issue!?

Although I received a PM from both James and Rainer, it seems that I cannot reply as a PM to both - as they not apparently received those.

Oooh Aaaah !!

If you really really really want an email Alexandra - I will be happy to oblige (as long as your hubby doesn't mind)...

In fact why don't all the readers of this particular-post send our Alexandra a PM/email to brighten her day and also test the system here... ???

Regards

Google occasionally asks me to verify the emails are genuine - I oblige in the positive; and still they fly into my spam folder. It's been happening for weeks.

This issue has never been resolved, no matter how many times I tell Google the messages are genuine - solarchatforum is also added as a Contact.

Every message still flies into Spam with
Be careful with this message

Gmail could not verify that it actually came from solarchatforum.com. Avoid clicking links, downloading attachments or replying with personal information.
Has anyone 'solved' this on their own emails? I use Gmail on Firefox.

Unfortunately not, it is a problem with your email blocking software and the forum can do nothing about it :(

Ok.

I'm doing as GMail recommends - so their machine learning erm isn't !

Messages from Forum are always marked as not-spam.
Address from Forum is in my Contact list.
Messages from Forum are filtered.

Nothing more I can do, then!!!!

Thanks Alex....I'll go hit a brick wall with my head.
