gMail has just (today) started thinking that all my Toppy forum notifications are spam. The only reason I'm seeing them is because I have a filter that explicitly says they're not. Unfortunately, this therefore means that I can't mark them as Not Spam to tell Google they've got it wrong.

So if you're suddenly not getting notifications, check your Spam folder.

That's annoying; I'll see if there's anything I can do to fix that - should be fine, as we have SPF records etc.

I'm pleased to report that it's changed its mind again now, and everything's back to normal. (Some time over the last 2-3 days, I think - I forgot to check the date of the first non-spam one.)

It's been at it again for the last few days. Only my gmail filters have stopped the forum notifications from going to spam.

I did have a notification a couple of days about the server having a DNS config that could potentially be abused, which I rectified, and perhaps that could have been the reason.

Unfortunately, the way in which many ISPs filter junk is unfathomable. All I get in my gmail box is spam I never signed up for.

... and once more it's stopped happening again.

Sigh. It's started happening again today. Only my filters have saved my notifications from ending up in Spam

This message was not sent to Spam because of a filter you created.

Hello,

You are receiving this email because you are watching the topic ...
on all (well both) of my notifications today.
