Spam filter blocks emails to myself...

@ComcastAntiSpam, I sometimes send emails to myself with reminders, useful information, etc.  The Xfinity spam filter is now putting those emails into my Spam folder.  Any thoughts on how to prevent this behaviour?

I am having the exact same issue for the last 2 years. comcast support says to disable the spam filter - what morons
I am transitioning everything to a gmail account - so far perfect

Re: Spam filter blocks emails to myself...

I'm running into this too.  Xfinity Spam/Junk control is stupid.   Who in charge of this department? Take my case.  Real world computer in the home environment.  Ok Run a home server in the basement.  24U rack.  the server has IPMI, the added JBOD has an IPMI,  the switch has IPMI, the UPS has an IPMI.  They all can monitor the hardware running.  They can email alerts and error reports too.  Remember I'm just a home user here.  I'm not a company.  Email's all I want or really need.  A simple heads up.  Example: Fans and power supplies can  Die! in the 24/7 redundant equipment.  I want to know that upstairs on the mini pcs i'm using most of the time.  Email can get that job done.  But then enters xfinity email.  Its spam filter auto marks mail from me to me as spam.  But it is weird too.  Take MS outlook me to me is not marked spam. But say simple "IMPI me" to me is marked spam.  What's lacking here are few simple user rules on the Spam/junk folder.   I should be able any email from me with this subject line  Ex: "IPMI-Alert"  the mail is not spam and move to the mail box as "Not Spam" automatically.  But I can't do this! Why I can't trust myself here!  It must be spam!  No!  Now Xfinity had posted if add a email address to address book its not marked spam and place inbox.  Tried that but no dice.  I guess that does work if its your own email address.  It just dumb.   The only option to turn off the spam filter because xfinity is too lazy to fix this issue!
