Spam is annoying but even more irritating is finding legit mails sitting in my spam folder. This has been happening so frequently that I am not sure how to stop this in Gmail. I discovered this by chance some weeks ago when I was emptying the folder.

If mails from various Ubuntu lists get dropped there, I wonder why Gmail does that. Randomly dropping some messages from Ubuntu lists (including other lists and private mail) into the spam folder automatically is not nice.

Having to manually wade through the spam box is a real torture but I guess that this probably started when I marked some messages from the fridge-list as spam, where we have had discussions about the spam and are still wondering how to reduce the spam levels.
