How do I stop legitimate email from going to spam

Gold Problem Solver

Re: email

Comcast does not really offer a way for customers to "unspam" an email address themselves. You can select the messages in the Spam folder and click the "Not Spam" button, but it will likely take a lot of clicking on a lot of messages to change this.


If it's only happening with one or two addresses, their Security Assurance group might be able to fix this for you. Give them a call at 1-888-565-4329 (from http://constantguard.comcast.net/help/report-abuse/). Note that this is NOT one of the general customer service numbers. The first-line reps there are sometimes not very helpful. If so, be persistent, and keep at them until you get a satisfactory answer.


Without their help, the only thing you can do to prevent messages from going to the spam folder is to turn spam filtering off completely so that everything they deliver is placed in the Inbox.

Re: email

Thank you for your reply. It's amazing that I've been getting emails from 2 particular sites for 2 years and now they end up in spam. I have been tagging them as not spam figuring the software would recognize that going forward but to avail.  I thought adding their email addresses to my address book may have worked but to no avail. I'll give them a call. Not happy!

Comcast doesn't take the address book into account when determining whether a message is spam. They should, but they don't.
