Like so many other folks I’ve been routing my email through Gmail. For me this was mostly about dealing with spam. On an average day I get 300+, so off to Gmail it goes. It’s never been perfect, usually letting through less than 10 a day, but that was manageable. Now I’ve got a whole new problem.
Sometime after the new year (as far as I can tell) Gmail started marking legit emails as spam. After trolling through my spam folder I found several emails that weren’t spam, so they never made it to my inbox. Hard to make out exactly what the trend is, so far it’s about 10 a week.
I would much rather have some spam hit my inbox than to have legit email get marked as spam. I’m now left with the reality that I’ll have to dig through the spam folder at the end of every day to make sure I didn’t miss anything, not a pleasant thought. My confidence and happiness with Gmail has gone done several notches because of this.
Just in case this is a system wide issue you may want to take a peek at your Gmail spam folder and see if you are having the same problem.
