After all the problems with PM's and emails all week, today half of my WA notifications are going to my inbox and half to Spam. Could someone explain how this is possible?

I've been experiencing the same issue for a couple of days now. I have to check my spam mail to open my WA notifications. This has never happened to me before. Hopefully this issue gets resolved for us soon:)

But at least we can still get access to our notifications even tho it's in our spam folder.

I use aol.com. Do you use the same?

The best thing to do with Gmail is to click and drag emails that you don't want as spam into your primary folder. This happens a lot - who knows why.

But when you click and drag the email into the main folder you will get a prompt from Gmail asking if you want all future emails with that address to go into this folder.

You just have to click yes on the prompt - it's black with white lettering at the bottom of the screen - and future emails should get shuffled to your main folder.

I don't use Gmail Wendy. I avoid as much contact with Google as possible. Big Brother will have to hunt for information on me. I am not volunteering it.

I don't blame you. But I bet most other email servers have a similar solution. There's always a way to redirect.

This may be due to the new algorithm from G. It may extend to Gmail (I am assuming you are using that), since G is advertising on Gmail as well.

The way the Spam folder works is it filter based on keywords (yes, keywords again) which are considered “spam” language and some other factors such as whether it comes from autoresponder and/or “bots” and/or bulk.

So, if there is 10,000 emails with the same header, WA emails will surely fall into that category, these filters may decided it is Spam and send it into the spam folder.

This is based on my analysis but G would have the answer.

I use AT&T. I use Google for as little as possible. They are going to have to work to get my personal information. I am not giving it to Big Brother like most people.

I’ve been getting all of WA emails in my spam folder since Thanksgiving. At first, I stopped receiving email altogether, and then they began going to my spam. I contacted Site Support, but they couldn’t resolve it.

I think I’m only getting about 1/10th of the emails right now. I’m hoping I don’t miss anything big.😳
Blessings:)

Nothing we can do on this end. I give up. I got more important and profitable things to worry about than email notifications here.

My private email is thru yahoo and thats where all of my WA stuff goes. I've always had a minor problem with white listed stuff going to spam, and spam showing up in my inbox. Bit of an inconvenience I know, but first thing in the morning, check my spam and trash folders before deleting.

In my case Mark, its more of a yahoo thing than it is a WA thing.
