Removing the spam tag in GMail?

I get notifications of blog comments sent to my gmail address. Naturally a lot of those are comment spam and their content means that the emails get put into the spam folder.

I really want to see those emails though so is it possible to remove the spam tag using a gmail filter?

I believe if you enter in your address book the email address where the comment notifications come from, the emails sent from that address will bypass the SPAM filter and will be delivered to your inbox right away. I'm not 100% sure though.

In addition to norbiq's suggestion, clicking the "Not Spam" button should be effective at adjusting your spam algorithms. In my personal experience I've never had to do that more than once; Gmail learns fast.

Here's the official recommendation:

Neil Fraser,

In my experience, Google forgets what you teach it about spam.

There is a real "satisfaction" problem with Gmail and it's "Spam Nazi"

The Gmail Spam Nazi has a weak memory, and likes to murder innocent messages anytime it gets a chance (or should we say put those messages in Gmail's Spam Gulag in which they live on death row for 30 days until summarily executed -- unless you spend as much time checking your Gmail "spam" folder each day as you spend showering and brushing your teeth.)

It also LOVES to gas newsletters and other repeat content from legitimate sites and senders.

Hey, but Google wants to be able to say "less spam" about their service.

What they don't say is "More false-positives" or "The leading killer of innocent email messages which you expected to receive."

Not impressive Gmail.

GMail has a new "Never send to spam" option when creating a filter! This is perfect for my needs.

I got satisfaction.

Hello, I am not shure I am writting at correct topic, but still, there is a thing. I have e-shop based on Joomla. When any of my customers orders somthing he is informed about it by recieving a mail from my server. But, it is tagget as "spam" for some reason. What can I do with it ? It would be much more comfortable when customer recieves email to email directorry, insted of spam.
Thank you.

Hi Maroš,

It's important to note that your question is the oposite of the original question in this thread. So the preceding suggestions won't work for you since you are the sender, not the receiver.

Gmail has a page of technical tips for commercial senders who are getting flagged as spam:
https://mail.google.com/support/bin/a...

Hope this helps.

I worked it out, by setting mail and password to my Joomla, so now I am the sender, not the bot and mails is not set as spam.
