Hi,

This is probably not a big deal but Gmail does classify the forum notifications as spam systematically:

Quote:
Why is this message in Spam? It is in violation of Google's recommended email sender guidelines (https://support.google.com/mail/answer/ ... entication).

That's been happening for months if not years - at least as long as I've been trying to use the email notifications. Every time I mark it as "not spam" but it still ends up in spam. I had to stop using email notifications on this forum consequently. I didn't bother reporting the issue because I'm tired of having to tell everyone about their misconfigured email systems.

this can be fixed by setting a filter specifically to catch the messages from OSdev.org and place them into the inbox

if you do this though, each message will appear with a header from gmail stating that this would have gone to the junk folder if it wasn't for that specific filter


marking not spam will never work because this site is black-listed

That's a good idea. I have plenty of imap filters already, I'll had one :)

Hi,


From my experience, though, when I still used to use Gmail, I tried to register to this site. I could not find the verification email in the inbox, but I would not even imagine it would end up in the spambox. I accidentally discovered it some days later though. Fun times. :)


Regards,
