[cross-project-issues-dev] Solved: Gmail thinks Gitlab is Spam


I have been complaining recently about lost emails, particularly all those from gitlab, github and some from cross-project-dev.

Problem solved. The lost emails have a tail that looks like:

[ { "@context": "";, "@type": "EmailMessage", "potentialAction": { "@type": "ViewAction", "target": "","url": "";, "name": "View Pull Request" }, "description": "View this Pull Request on GitHub", "publisher": { "@type": "Organization", "name": "GitHub", "url": ""; } } ]

The latest 'improved' Gmail spam filter is 'clever' enough to regard the tail gibberish as a Spam indicator, and so Thunderbird failed to download the messages for me.

Unfortunately if you log on to Gmail, the Spam folder is not visible unless you scroll the folder list, so I was deceived into thinking there was no recoverable personal Spam just lost global Spam.

Once I scrolled and opened the Spam folder, Eureka, there are all the lost emails (well 30 days worth). After marking a few as not-Spam, the filter was trained and 180 lost emails were available to Thunderbird.

Bottom line. If you use Gmail, review your Spam folder because recent Eclipse communications have a junk tail that predisposes them to be treated as Spam.

Surely Eclipse should not be sending messages with such a provocative junk tail?
