Re: [Micronet] Google Spam Filter Problem?

Jon Hays

Hi All,


Here is an update to last month’s “Google SPAM Filter Problem” thread.


The bConnected team has been working with Google and other universities in response to reports of messages wrongly classified as SPAM. Based on our research, we’ve enabled an additional setting in bMail's (Google) routing configuration that is more compatible with our legacy on-premise email systems. We believe this change will reduce the amount of mail being misidentified. We will continue to monitor the situation, and report additional findings to the user community.


In the meantime, here are a few recommended steps to take:

Hi Mike,

Just wanted to reply to you and the others that the bConnected team has received a few reports of this beginning recently and the team is actively following up w other universities & has escalated with Google.  We will work with CSS to make sure they let others know this is a known issue.

Once we get some details, we can share them back here as well.

Hi,

Has something gone awry with the Google spam filter lately?  For the
past few weeks, I'm finding my regular mailings from such places as the
NY Times and Netflix in my spam folder.  I've been hoping to "train" the
filter by selecting "Not Spam" (in the Chrome interface), to no avail.
This started happening only in the past couple of months or so;  before
that, no problem.

Any words of wisdom would be welcome.

Thanks.

Mike

Jon,

For the record: since you made the above change, my spam situation has improved tremendously.  The non-spam items that previously were going to my spam folder no longer are.  So, it looks like the new settings are working.

Thanks.

Mike

Hi Mike,

thanks for the feedback!  I'll be sure this gets back to our mail admins... though I'm pretty sure they are on list ;-)

fwiw, I just checked my spam folder and found this weeks email from the UC IT Blog (though not much else in error). There’s something ironic about that…
