I assume you're talking about switching email services? If so, then I think
it'd be worth it if it meant fixing these issues.

I've given my email address to many places and people and would have to
switch a lot of things to a different mail address if I went thru and did
something like this though considered it myself.

Hi Madison,

I live next door to you in Sask.
I choose to use sasktel as my I s p and mail server.
I had sasktel set my filters to none.
These days, the amount of truly junk mail I get is less than 1 % with no
filters.


Set your mail to no filters and see how things go. Try it for a week and
see how it is.

Cheers,

Mont

Hi all,
Does anyone know of any email services (if that's even the right word for
them, sorry if it's not) that don't filter messages at all? The reason that
I ask is because I had a gmail account (I actually still have it but I don't
use it
anymore) but I stopped using it because I found out how much gmail filters
messages and this annoyed me. I switched back to an account with my ISP, but
now I'm having all kinds of problems with their filtering marking messages
that aren't spam as spam which means that I don't recieve them and now I'm
constantly worrying about whether or not I'll get a message or not and also
about what messages I'm not getting because of their filtering. There are
newsletters that I've signed up for that I'm pretty sure are being marked as
spam and so therefor I'm not getting them, I've added these addresses to my
safe senders' list on my ISP's webmail preferences but this has not solved
my problem. When I was subscribed to these newsletters with my gmail address
they'd come through just fine, but I really want to have all of my emails
being sent to one address, I really don't want to have to have to be
checking multiple addresses all the time. The reason I changed addresses is
because I asked my ISP and they told me that they don't filter to the same
extent that gmail does. I totally get that they need and want to protect
people from spam and such, but when you're not receiving all emails sent to
you because they're thought to be spam when they're not then that's no good
either. I've asked them and they say that they can't turn off the filters
(if I have to deal with spam then I really don't care if it means that it
prevents other emails from being marked as spam and therefor I get them
which is all I really want) and I haven't gotten any response from them when
I've asked them to look into emails that aren't spam but are being marked as
such by their filters. This is really frustrating and worrying me and I'm
really not sure what else to do so that's why I'm asking about this. If
anyone is wondering I use the latest versions of Jaws, Office 365 (as I use
Outlook to access my emails) and Windows 10 pro and I don't have any rules
or filters set up in Outlook. Really hope someone has a suggestion, as I
really want to do something about this as it's driving me nuts, please don't
tell me to just unsubscribe from the newsletters. Sorry for such a long
message, any help/suggestions will be very much appreciated!!!! Thanks
Madison
