    Default Why are SOG notifications going to SPAM?

    For some reason all email notifications are going straight to the Spam folder if you have gmail. I have seen other comments about this. Below is a screen shot of the gmail advisory on the email from SOG

    Maybe someone with better computer skills can decipher what the problem might be?

    Well, that's a bother. I know Rob has reported issues of a similar nature?

    Seems as though Sails and the Drome are being treated as Spam sites for some unknown reason.

    Same thing happened to me, but a quick check in the spam folder and notifying the filter that the Anchorage and Aerodrome were trusted has sorted the problem.

    I am not sure how to do that in gmail David.
    I have identified them as "Not Spam" but they keep going to the spam folder.

    My notifications are not even getting as far as my Spam Folder.

    Interesting development this morning all of my SOG email notifications are in my In-Box! And I did nothing more than I already tried without results. Very strange!

    Would you be referring to this?

    For some unknown reason, my notifications were restored suddenly last evening. I discovered it this morning, and they are still coming through. I did nothing to initiate this. Has anyone else found their mail restored ?

    I had to brute-force it by adding a filter that automatically diverts everything to a folder.

    Just wish I could stop every photo I post, also duplicating it by adding it as an attatchment to the bottom of the post.
    That's been going on for months now.

    Yes Rob I posted about it above on Dec 27
    Although they are still showing up with a question mark beside them and Gmail is still saying they are unauthenticated mail
