SPAM

I want to know why when I send an email to several people in my address book that my email is kicked back to me immediately by Verizon as SPAM.  Yet I get 30 OBVIOUS SPAM emails a day delivered to my inbox instead of being recognized as SPAM and dealt with accordingly.

Unless my memory is shot, like other mail servers, Verizon used to allow you to register addresses and domains as SPAM which would prevent it ever being delivered to your inbox.

You can write rules for mail that will kick them to where you want or delete incoming mail.

There default filter does not normally filter by domain or id, but uses a complicated not published algorithm to detect spam.  You can help this by forwarding spam which MAY cause them to detect such in the future.

Outgoing is a different problem.

Are you super against ads? Because if not, you really should switch to a non-Verizon email (gmail, yahoo, outlook.com). Their interfaces and features tend to be better, spam tools more robust and you don't have to worry about what happens if you leave Verizon.

It's because the Verizon outbound spam detector is somewhat flawed. E.G  It tends to say that any email that has multiple urls in it is spam.  I quite often receive emails with no issues but can't forward them because of problems such as this.

I get around the issue by forwarding such emails using my gmail account to send them via the gmail smtp server.
