What is the interaction, if any, between Comcast Spam Filtering and an Individually Created Filter?
I used to get email messages from a particular source without incident. Within the past several months, the Comcast spam filter has decided that messages from this source are spam. I have repeatedly logged into Comcast webmail and marked the messages from that source as Not Spam. The Comcast Spam Filter has not yet taken the hint.
In the past, I have created filters so that messages from certain sources would automatically be routed to the Spam folder. The thought occurs to me that perhaps doing the opposite would be a way to get around Comcast's (in this instance) overly zealous and stubborn Spam Filter.
In other words, I would create a filter with the condition:
Sender/From Contains <Edited>
where <Edited> is the email address of the source that is sending *desired* (i.e., non-spam) messages to me.
The filter would have the Action:
Move to folder Select folder Inbox
Would this filter, if I create it, prevent Comcast's Spam Filter from moving to the Spam fiolder messages from someone whose email address includes <Edited>
I see, at this page, the following:
Email Safe List
The Email Safe List, found under Settings > Advanced Settings in Xfinity Connect, lets you list the only email addresses from which you want to receive emails.
- Note: If you use this feature, you will only receive messages from the addresses you specify. Messages from other addresses not included on the list will be rejected.
If I read the above correctly, activating the Email Safe List function is a sledgehammer approach. It results in extreme whitelisting.... only messages from previously approved sources will reach my In box. That is not the result that I would want. Rather, I would like to be able to instruct Comcast once not to treat mail from a particular source as spam, and I would like to have Comcast pay attention to that instruction the first time that I issue it, without affecting the treatment of messages from other sources.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions or comments.
