I subscribe to a Google Service called Google Alerts. Anytime certain keywords that I want to watch for are indexed by Google I get an email from them telling me about the new pages on the web that have those keywords.
The email address that these alerts get sent to is my Gmail email address which has the spam filter switch on. It's the best spam filter I've seen and so I trust it but I often glance over the spam list before I "delete all" to make sure that it's doing a good job.
Today I saw a Google Alert in the spam box. The email came from [email protected] and I checked the IP it came from and it wasn't spoofed. It also contained the regular alert content.
What amazes me is that Google's own email is getting put in the spam bucket by it's own filters. At the very least I would have thought that they would have white listed their own IP. Apparently not.

This is what happened with me too !!
This is very strange !
I got the [email protected] and I tryed to send them to spam but they just keep writing . I had no idea that everything was going to be breaking news, so I'm getting way to much e-mail. I don't know how to stop it. If you know how to stop it. Please e-mail me and let me know what I need to do. I would be very greatfull Dave SmithReplyDelete
When you receive an email from Google Alerts you will see that there's a link in the email that says something like 'edit my alerts.' Click that link and it will allow you to disable all your alerts.ReplyDelete

It's a Google App that you can setup to alert you when google indexes a page with a keyword that you're interested in.ReplyDelete
Thanks Guy, this info on Google Alerts was helpful and well presented.ReplyDelete
. I've set google alert for my name (first and last), and it shows up on these weird lists of random names and words on websites, such as daveandjonathan.com? What's that about?ReplyDelete
