Hello,

Is anyone else finding that starting a few weeks ago all potential spam emails are going to the inbox instead of the spam folder? It's good that those messages now get a "SPAM" button in the body of the email to make them easier to send to the spam folder, but that means twice as many messages to open and click that added spam button. How TEDIOUS!!

I've searched through settings but can't find anything that would restore the feature to automatically sending these to the spam folder.

Is there a way to go back to having potential spam emails automatically go to the spam filter as they did before?

Thanks!
Greg

Hello, I agree that its ironic that a spammer responds to your question about spam... with spam!

There may have been a recent update with your specific provider that has resulted in this resurgence of spam emails. To better help you, which email account provider are you referring to?

Yahoo mail. I'm new and found this forum by a google search on the problem and thought this forum was dedicated to Yahoo.

Silly me!
