spam filter blocking email from hospital

Good Morning,

I have a serious problem and need help.  I have a computer software consulting business working with hospitals.  My clients communicate with me mostly by emails to my verizon.net email address.  My most important client is a hospital in New York (Northern Westchester Hospital www.nwhc.net) with whom I've been working for 11 years.

Starting about 10:30 in the morning on 4/5/16 all emails originating from this hospital are being marked as spam!  I added the domain nwhc.net to my safe senders list, but all this does is allow the email to arrive in my inbox. 

I get a spam error if I try to reply or forward these emails to any one orther than spamdetector.update@verizon.net.  This is the email address that Verizon says to report this kind of problem.  I have forwarded each email to this address.  There instuctions say that within an hour they will correct the problem.

Not so.

I'm wondering if there are others from the hospital - doctors - sending important emails to patients and others that are getting caught up in verizon's misguided SPAM filter.

I've called verizon and talked to 4 different people.  They are unable to help me.

Can anyone help?

Thank You,

Diane Fernald

The hospital email issue above has been resolved - I am now getting emails from nwhc.net and am able to reply.  However, since that issue was resolved, I have been inundated wtih spam.  I had thought that verizon corrected the issue (which affected more than just myself)  but now I'm wondering if they just behind the scenes loosened up spam filtering for my email address, allowing the nwhc.net emails to pass through, but also allowing spam.

My spam detector is ON.

I tried to keep up with the domains sending the spam by entering them in the email filters to be sent to "spam detector folder".  However I have maxed out on the 50 allowed filters. 

I am now using the block senders list, but really, I am spending too much time on this.

Verizon, please advise.
