I have used Gmail for a long time, and for the most part, Google has done a pretty good job at catching spam, so I don’t even have to look at it in the first place. However, I have been having an issue lately and I need to figure out how to get it fixed, because there has been some consistent items of spam mailed to my account over the past few weeks. I am looking into this email@example.com email address and seeing if it is the target for spam reports. I am really interested in figuring out how to let google know about my problem, but it seems pretty hard to contact them directly. I am not sure what the issue is with talking to them directly, but I guess they would just get inundated with questions and stuff if they just let anyone contact them.
I want to get rid of this spam though, because it is really annoying at the moment. I am going to try to set up a custom filter if my spam reports do not work to let Google know that they should be keeping these emails out of my inbox. But I will try to find out the answer one way or another, because I have had an inbox free of spam for too many years to go back to worrying about spam on a regular basis. If it came down to it, I would just stop using my Gmail account and go to some other service. But I doubt I will have to do that, and I do not want to do that. I have used this email account for probably 10 years, or maybe longer. I am not sure how long Gmail has been out, but it is probably about 10 years.
