Disable the Gmail spam filter - need help testing...
Here's the deal:
I set up a filter to look for "*@*" in the "from" and mark it
starred. That stars everything coming in. Interesting...
So, I've now added "*@*" as a contact under the name spammer - the
theory being that all mail from contacts is whitelisted when it comes
to the spam filter. If it works as it does with filters, no mail will
ever be marked spam, and I can start getting my false positives via
POP. Time will tell if this provides a way to bypass the spam filter as
I don't get much spam.
Perhaps someone who gets more spam can try this to confirm it.
