Gmail marked registration confirmation as spam...

Post by corbya »

Just wanted to let you know that my gmail account marked your registration confirmation as spam. That's about the only false positve I've received in a month or so.

Cheers

When I had my password and resent a few days ago, it landed in the gmail spam folder too.

No, they don't really list the points. But I would tend to agree with another poster that mentioned the return path of Reply-To: do_not_email@nowhere.tld is likely causing the problem.

I marked it as "Not Spam". I could request a password resend to see if their system learned from my marking it as not spam.

Good News regarding gmail marking as spam. I marked the message as Not Spam, and then requested a password reset.

The message came through without being marked as spam. This was really the first opportunity I ever had to test their Not Spam feature and it worked.

I think if you make the return path something valid, the problem will probably be fixed. This is just a guess as there's no way to tell what magic lies behind the gmail system.

I use gmail but I didn't have this problem registering here.
I've never marked anything as "Not Spam" but it does filter other spam stuff properly so I know it's enabled and working.
