    Hotmail-wopr mail goes to junk

    As I am on leave from work at the moment, I decided to redirect my Lounge messages notifications from my work account to my Hotmail Account. Now every mail from loungeadmin@wopr.com automatically gets put in my Junk mail. I have have attempted to say that all mail from loungeadmin@wopr.com is OK and to direct it to my inbox but it still doesn't do it... any tips on how to get it diverted to my proper inbox? It's driving me <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15>

    Re: Hotmail-wopr mail goes to junk

    Hi Bob

    The problem is that all mail from Woodys that is sent to my HoTMaiL account gets put in the Junk E-Mail folder. That last message I put in was me trying to tell hotmail to accept messages from loungeadmin@wopr.com...it did not work as the from address from wopr states XXXXXXXX@hotmail.com where XXXXXXXX is my account name. If I then put in XXXXXXXX@hotmail.com as a acceptable email it refuses it.

    Before you sent this message I tried to change the filter to allow messages with LoungeAdmin in the subject but it did not work as it went straight to the Junk E-Mail folder again.

    Re: Hotmail-wopr mail goes to junk

    Right I have found the solution.

    If anybody else uses Hotmail this is the way to stop your messages going to the junk email folder and directly to your inbox:

    1) Open Help
    2) Click on "Filter your incoming messages
    3) Create a New Filter

    Follow instructions provided by Hotmail

    In the Custom Filters section,

    4) Click New

    5) Identify incoming messages which: have LoungeAdmin <XXXXXXXX@hotmail.com> in the subject.

    Where XXXXXXXX is your account name


    6) Select Deliver these messages to the following folder----Inbox

    Now all the mail from the Lounge will go to your inbox

    Re: Hotmail-wopr mail goes to junk

    A similar approach for those who use GMail. Next to the button on the top of the window that says
    "Seach the web" you'll see two links, one for "Show search options" and one for "Create a filter".

    That's an intersting find Jeremy. It appears that a lot of Web based mail services do this.

    Re: Hotmail-wopr mail goes to junk

    They certainly do, and don't expect them to be consistent. Between one week and the next all my mail from wopr.com got junked by spamcop.net. I had to switch to another email account to receive messages, since my spamcop whitelist apparently no longer worked. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Charlotte,
    You don't have Verizon do you? ( shudder )
    Sounds so familiar.

    Thanks Charlotte

    This is maddening, half of my posts from the past 24 hours have gone to Junk mail and the other half to my inbox.

    I also find that some of the post from my students go to junk as well, I just cant explain it...time for a change of web based email account I think.

    Re: Hotmail-wopr mail goes to junk

    No, spamcop is an internet-based mail service. I suspect somewhere along the way they looked at the volume of mail I got from wopr.com and decided that it must be junk! <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15> I have since disabused them of that idea, but I think I'll stick to routing my wopr.com mail through another address anyhow. <img src=/S/thinks.gif border=0 alt=thinks width=15 height=15>
