    GMail sees Woody's as Spam

    Just recently I have found that messages from The Lounge are going into my Spam box in GMail. Whilst understanding the reasons for this, does anybody know a "fix" in the settings of GMail that sees Lounge Post as OK and send it to my Inbox? I have fiddled around and cannot see a way to get around it. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    This has only started recently and is irritating as I have autoforwarding on this account.

    Who is indicated as sender of the Lounge e-mails? Try adding the sender to your Gmail contacts; mail from one of your contacts shouldn't be seen as spam.

    I'm also getting this on some posts - you can only whitelist by adding an address to Contacts: http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer....9009&topic=1520

    Re: GMail sees Woody's as Spam

    I cannot add the email address to the contacts folder as they suggest in the help files I type in XXXXXXXX@googlemail.com to add and it is not saved

    The email sees: LoungeAdmin <XXXXXXXX@googlemail.com>. I have even tried LoungAdmin and again it does not take.

    Another option is to select one or more of the Lounge e-mails in the Spam folder and click Not Spam. After a few tries Gmail should learn from this.

    OK That sounds like a plan, I'll reply to myself now and do it again. Thanks, it is worth a try

    Nope, straight to Spam again. I have contacted GMail and will probably get an answer in a few hundred years <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Jerry,

    While fiddling around, did you try to create a filter for the Lounge mail?
    If you click Settings> Accounts>Filters>Create a new filter, then add the Lounge mail address and set it forward to your regular email address, it may do the trick for you.

    I have that filter in my gmail account and seems to work OK.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15> I am probably being really thick here.

    In the from field of the filter do I type in:

    LoungeAdmin <XXXXXXX@gmail.com> or wopr.com


    and then how do I forward it to my email account?
