gmail problems with mail for windows

I use mail with no problem with my hotmail account. Recently, gmail has been putting sent emails in the spam folder, and now it leaves them stuck in the outbox. This happens on my laptop, while my pc just does the spam trick. I read that it's a mail app problem which Microsoft haven't yet fixed. Is it likely to be fixed soon, because t's a nightmare!

That has been reported by many. Some people claim that the issue is fixed in ver 2004 but there has been a variation in that too.

There is a workaround given here:

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/for...

workaround solution by Praful K found on Feedback Hub:

- Go to gmail.com and logon
- Click "Settings", top right
- Click "Filters and blocked addresses"
- Click "Create a new filter"
- Put your email address into the "From" field
- Click "Create filter"
- On the next page, select "Never send it to Spam"
- Click "Create filter"
This stops sent mail going to Spam, but unfortunately creates 2 sent items in Windows Mail. Good temporary fix though.

Please discard any email you got for calling a number. That is a spam.

Hi Sumit, thanks for your reply.

I've decided to live with it and move relevant emails manually from spam to the sent box for now.

I'm hoping that a future windows update will fix it.

I appreciate your thoughts, 

Colin
