So I have been wondering why I didn't get any notices from Itchmo since I changed my email address, and yesterday I found out why.  They have all been going into a spam folder, which I did not know was there.  I realized I was not getting any job notices and finally found the spam folder Tongue.  I am trying to figure out how to turn this off.  I feel so stupid, I am technically challenged and should have realized there was a spam folder but still it would have been nice if it showed up under folders. BTW nothing in the folder was spam but of course it is deleted after 30 days.

I don't understand why all of a sudden my job notices went to spam. Stupid email Angry

You can't really turn off the spam feature.  You can see the spam folder more easily, by doing this:

1. In the upper right corner of GMail, click the gear icon. A drop down menu will appear.

2. Click ‘Settings’. The main window will refresh with all available settings.

3. Click ‘Labels’ (Upper tab - 2nd from left)

4. Scroll down until you see the ‘Spam’ folder setting.

5. Choose from “show”, “hide” or “show if unread”. You may change the setting back and forth to your liking.

Choose "show" and the spam folder should display on the list to the left, underneath "all mail"

If you put a check by the letters in spam file, there is a place to click "not spam" (that will move them to inbox).  Also you can add known (trusted) senders to your contacts:

1. With the email in question open to full display, mouse over the sender’s email address. A pop-up will appear.

2. At the bottom of the pop-up, click on the “Add to contacts” text. The page will reload displaying a partially completed contact form.

3. Note that the contact form has automatically populated the email address in the appropriate field.
