I noticed today that Google has made a serious change in their effort to stop spam, particularly that of phishing emails. I use a hosted application that generates emails every time a specific action occurs. But all of a sudden today there were no emails. I checked my spam folder, and there they were.
I noticed something new about these emails:
- They had big red and yellow warning messages:
Warning: This message may not be from whom it claims to be. Beware of following any links in it or of providing the sender with any personal information.Â Â Learn more
- They are getting marked as spam because the 'from' email domain doesn't match the sender's domain. This is going to have a massive impact on web applications that send emails.
- They can't be un-spammed. Even when I click 'not spam' on one of them, the rest keep going to the spam folder.
I'd like to know if there's a setting that can be turned off, or at least turned down in sensitivity, so that unmatched sending domains can still send emails.
