Nope, have you tried clicking not spam on all of them?

Yep, did that as soon as they appeared, but new threads seem to make their way there.

For starters under the reply box there is always a check box.

Check this box if you want to receive e-mail notifications when someone replies to this pos


Secondly, in the email you can un-subscribe to that particular thread.

Thirdly, in your Profile Options, Edit my Profily, there is

Default option to receive forum replies (you can change while posting in the forums)

If you report spam on email you have consented to getting you are screwing things up for other people.

They are not spam. Any actions you do to call them that are IMO libelous statements.

We have it all the time with a website I am involved with, if we could charge people as a result of the losses their reporting invalid spam complaints causes I would do in an instant.

First, Google shouldn't flag it as spam - our DNS records include a SPF text with indication of which domains can send email from geekzone.co.nz and Google should look at that... Nothing much else we can do really.

Patznz, if you don't want it don't cal it spam. Call it unwanted, trash, rubish, but it's not spam. At some point you subscribed to the emails - if you don't want anymore you can click the unsubscribe links, modify your profile or set the reply by individual thread. By calling spam, when you have options, is a bit too much...

Email and junk/spam mail detection is such a headache.

It's really hard to get a legitimate newsletter for say an online pharmacy through spam filters because of the shear amount of abuse put through by spammers.

Hopefully wave can kill off email as the way email works if fairly fundamentally flawed in practice.

It usually works ok to the larger providers till dickheads that signed up start clicking report spam on the mails that are not spams.

Then they basically hold you to ransom to try to prove that the tards have signed up for it. Yahoo seem to think that you should stop emailing people just because they ask and that continuing to is spam, even tho people agreed to receive emails when setting up an account and have a business relationship so they are not unsolicited.

Hi, after I posted this several more threads ended up in SPAM each time I hit the not SPAM button, then an hour or two latter all returned to normal.

I guess whats had me most intrigued is that as Mauricio says, GZ is listed as safe with Google, so why did it happen in the first place.

As an aside, most of my email is routed through my domain (www.rfdesign.co.nz) which has spam assassin filtering things before its forwarded to gmail, so on a day to day basis I get very little spam.

Anyway all's good now.

Cyril

If you are going thru another host then it will be coming from a server not listed in the SPF records, so it should all go to the spam as being spoofed really, as your mail server has no right sending stuff as geekzone.
