I've always run my own spam filters (Popfile) and therefore have my settings for POP3 and Forwarding as:
"Download spam with no special indicaters"
Whilst checking issues on the recent POP3 login failures (see other posts) I see I've got mail in my Bulk folder, both for my @btinternet and @Yahoo.co.uk accounts.
Now I am also a BT Shareholder; guess where the "BT Annual Report and AGM 2017" email notification went? Yep - Bulk mail folder.
Amateurs? Incompetent? Uncaring? - or maybe all three.
Well my alternate email service appears to have been working ok for a few months - time for a full migration.
Forwarding of suspected spam hasn't been working for months. There are a number of threads on the forum about it. Usual story, Yahoo make changes but don't tell anybody.
Some threads seem to indicate differing issues, one is mail being rejected as spam. Even worse is mail rejected without notification as occurs with my personal pension/SIPP provider - to the point that I've now given them a g mail a/c which then is set to forward to my btinternet - and this works. Now I only knew I wasn't getting it because it was a monthly email to tell me my pension payment had been made. How many other of my emails are simply lost to the internet?
But to ignore "Deliver all mail" has to be a bit perverse. It is tolerable to have false positives but to provide a flag that says "let me have it all" and then ignore it??
Time to step up my migration after at least 20yrs of @btinternet
