    Default Keep getting same spam emails in my Gmail inbox.

    Every day for a couple weeks now between 2pm and 3pm, I get a spam message in my Gmail inbox that manages to beat the spam filter.

    The message is the same thing every day. Some bullshit program being offered at some bullshit online college.

    I always "block" and move to spam folder, but the same message returns the next day from a different address.

    It wouldn't bother me if it were going straight to spam, but it's beating the filter and coming directly to my inbox. Really pissing me off!

    you can setup filters to block by very specific key words - and then auto delete the email. i've been doing this since 2004

    So, you might say that they are lane splitting past your spam filter?

    Thanks, I looked into that. I set up a filter and auto delete using a keyword that never changes in each message I get. Hopefully I have it set up correctly. We'll see.

    Some would say it is filtering the filter.
