Gmail Spam Folder

Spam or Junk emails are virtually inevitable in any email system, unless you keep the account idle. Sometimes some unwanted subscriptions are very stubborn that you continue receiving ‘junk’ emails even after you unsubscribe. You can always mark the unwanted emails as ‘spam’ and directly send it to the Gmail Spam Folder without it appearing in your Inbox.

To send an email in the Inbox to Gmail Spam Folder, two easy steps will suffice:

  1. In the Inbox tab, click the small square on the left of the email that you consider junk.
    Or open the email to check if it is actually a ‘spam’. More options will appear above the emails.
  2. Hover your mouse over the the icons above the emails and click on ‘Report Spam’ button.
    This will remove all the emails from the sender in the Inbox and transfer them to the Spam Folder.

Incase you mark spam a not-spam email, you get an immediate ‘undo’ option to bring back the email to the Inbox folder.

And, if you are late to do the undo, and want to mark Spam folder mail as ‘not spam’, follow these simple steps:

  1. Find ‘Spam’ folder.
    The Gmail Junk Folder is not visible by default. You’ll have to click ‘More’ (or you may need to scroll down) on the left side of the screen to make ‘Spam’ folder visible.
  2. Then, as previously stated, click on the small square beside the required email you thin is not Spam.
  3. A ‘Not spam’ button will appear above the mails. Click it to send it back to Inbox folder.

In case you forget to do the Not Spamming, you’ll have 30 days to do so. Messages that have been in Spam more than 30 days will be automatically deleted. Which is a good thing too. Spam messages will not accumulate, and you will not have to keep deleting them regularly.

Moreover, you can also create a filter in Gmail.com to send those unwanted messages from specific addresses or domains directly to the ‘Spam’ folder, never to be seen. You can download ‘Block Sender for Gmail’ gmail extension for your web browser, or Manually create a filter from Settings tab in Gmail.
