Marking incoming gmail powered emails as NOT spam

Updated: Feb 26

Very often your Google powered gmail web client incorrectly interprets automated email messages as spam and places them in your webmail spam folder.

You need to follow these simple steps to tell Google that such emails are not spam and to add the senders to your contact list in order to ensure that future emails from these senders are never placed in your spam folder ever again:

Figure 1: Clicking on the More menu to reveal the Spam folder menu

Figure 1: Clicking on the More menu to reveal the Spam folder menu

Open your webmail (gmail) client (see figure 1)

Figure 2: Clicking on the revealed Spam folder menu to see all messages in your spam folder

Click on the More menu item in the left column to reveal the Spam folder menu item and click on this item (see figure 2)

Figure 3: Select all not spam messages and click on Not spam button

Select all the check boxes of the messages that you feel are not spam and then click on the Not spam button (figure 3)

Figure 4: Add each sender to your Contacts list

Click on each message and add specific sender to your Contact list from the drop-down menu in the upper right corner of the opened message (figure 4)


Google will learn and you will no longer miss important messages. Also, depending on your settings you might need to add blog/newsletter emails to your contacts list so they stop going to your spam folder.
