yahoo marks Gmail messages as spam


Why the f**k does Yahoo put gmail emails into spam?

it is *so* annoying...i send an important mail & completely forget that the recipient is a Yahoo mail user....
& the mail lost among the large volume of spam in his/her bulk mail folder

that is unfair .... is there nothing we can do?

I do believe that Yahoo Mail has the option for you to mark the email as not spam. Perhaps this is just their way of displaying their bitterness towards a company that is making more money than them... perhaps their just jealous..

i verified it *again* .. but, it is still diverting to bulk folder *sigh*

is there anything we can do to make them change their policies? because, this is quite a big issue, coz, many people don't even check their bulk folders ...

damn yahoo!

Works fine for me sending from Gmail to Yahoo.

Perhaps this is something you need to discuss with Yahoo and not LQ...

I've noticed the tendency for Yahoo! to mark non-spam mail as spam and vice versa. Actually I don't think it's deliberate. It's just that the Yahoo! Bulk feature is crappy

My vote is not using yahoo. I stopped using them when the very first popup cam out from their site. They have constantly been trying to find ways to have very intrusive ads and send out plenty of spam themselves and they turn around and point the finger any everyone else. Same reasons I won't use hotmail or AOL.

Well Yahoo and M$ are getting together soon if not already. We all know how much Mr Ballmer hates Google ( chair throwing).

Why Gmail shows up as spam in Yahoo mail?? answer up top ^
