csouter Posted February 1, 2019 Share Posted February 1, 2019 (edited) Hi all, Yet another of those stupid questions which I'm in the habit of asking. I don't get much spam these days, maybe three or four per week, (down from anything up to 400 - 500 per day a couple of years back)! Nowadays, I use Gmail for most of my online communications, and I will occasionally receive an email that has managed to slip through Gmail's spam filters, and, of course, I will immediately report it to SpamCop as soon as I become aware of it. However, more often than not, Gmail's filters will already have caught the spam and kindly placed it into the spam folder so that I can deal with it at my convenience. Most of the time, Gmail is correct in its assessment, but if it does come up with a false positive, it's a simple matter to click "not spam" and return the message to the inbox where it belongs. If a message has been correctly identified as spam, normally I will still report it to SpamCop, (having first redacted those lines that Gmail inserts into the headers, causing SpamCop to think that there's "nothing to do"). However, I do occasionally forget to make that report, and I'm just wondering whether it's really necessary to report spam that Gmail has already correctly identified. Is it of any use to anyone if I report spam that Gmail has already identified correctly? I'm looking forward to hearing your opinions on the matter. Thanks in advance.
