Spam from Gmail to your local account does not come

Post by viktor1504 » 2019-11-29 13:48

Created a domain. Connected to a local, external Gmail account. The local account is tied to ThunderBird. Mail comes and goes. The only thing that doesn’t come is messages from the Spam folder to local mail. What could be the reason?

External account will ONLY collect from the INBOX folder

That's a POP3 thing
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.

Is it possible to somehow collect mail from the external Spam folder G-mail, to the local Spam folder?

Set up a filter to disable SPAM handling on GMail ;-)

I forward all my mail from GMail so had to do the filter thingy...

If size > 0 bytes
Never send it to Spam

It works :mrgreen:

Sometimes Google and I do not agree on what is SPAM or not. 😏

I use GMail as added security. I host my own domain and if my DNS hosting service fails i need to move domain to different hosting and for that Network Solutions must be able to mail me. So I need an "external" email I can trust. AND ... I use the addres for my Android phone anyways 😎
