Gmail's spam filter hasn't impressed me for quite some time: spam filter false positives [webmasterworld.com]

You may have inadvertantly clicked somthing asking that all mail goes to your inbox. Check the options menu.

We get a ton of mail every day and the SPAM filters are definately working - maybe not as well as i would like.

We had over 100 e-mails in the SPAM folder over night.

Most of the time it is working fine for me, but there are always a few mistakes every day in the filters. Noting unexpected, considering it is BETA.

Yes, big time. Still plenty of spam going into the spam folder but a lot more is getting through than usual.

I'm another one who can attest to this!
I have floods of spam entering my main inbox these days, and very little ends up in the spambox.
I've not changed anything - THAT I know.

Google - whats up? Switch my filter back on!

It does seem that they are adjusting the filters as I now see a lot more spam in my inbox, along with a lot of legitimate mail in the spam-box. They've got a long way to go it seems.

We are also seeing more obvious spam in our inbox and normal mail in the spam box.

When I say obvious spam these are drug and sex e-mails that should have been picked out just by the subject lines.

Is it possible someone is sabatoging the automatic filtering system by clicking these e-mails as "NOT SPAM" thereby fooling the system? Just a thought. If enough people (spammers with multiple accounts) did it it might work.
