    It's already in the Spam label why does it bother you? Just scan your Spam label for legit mails Google's neural network might have misplaced as Spam and move on with your life.... (Spam mails get deleted every 30 days automagically anyway)

    EDIT: Also upgrade to Google Inbox...

    You mean you don't want 30,000+ horny Russian girls drooling over you for love and more. Don't worry if they bleed you dry financially as you can clearly borrow up to $35k overnight and lots of unclaimed money.

    No Bat was dumb enough to mis-read the spam. His said Male Order Bride. He got Lady boy from Thailand.

    There is only one way to truly stop spam mail

    You must reply STOP to each and every one of them, only then will they take you seriously and stop sending you spam.

    Bat's advice is wise, your action in giving your email isn't.

    But it's useful to have an email for giving to potential spammers, so keep it for that purpose. That's what I do and it works better than throw-away emails.

    As for a new email client, I have found that Microsoft's Outlook (hotmail.com) is the best at keeping spam out of the inbox, because you can set it up so that it only puts there messages from your contact list. Also those messages will never land in your spam box.

    lol, I was joking, that will undoubtedly get you a huge amount more spam, don't open them, delete them without looking at them is the only way to avoid getting more and more

    You're lucky, yours are going in your spam folder, I'm getting 50+ spam in my inbox each day for outlook

    It's not a matter of luck with Outlook. Like I said, you've got to set your filter to exclusive, then only emails from your Contacts List will go into your Inbox. Everything else will go in the Spam box. It follows that everybody relevant has to be in your Contacts List.

    Yea, I have thought about doing that, might be a PITA for me though, I have a lot of emails from companies I don't want in my contacts but I still want in my inbox

    Is this thread a windup?

    Ignore the SPAM, get gmail filter it out.

    No point in getting all upset over it. It's a fact of life.
