I’m playing around with google apps, and one great feature is the ability to import in existing gmail accounts – all email messages and even labels.
One thing I assumed was that no messages from my gmail spam folder would be imported – and that turned out to be true. But after the gmail import I noticed a bunch of message in the new google apps account’s spam folder. On closer inspection they were all legit messages including google alerts sent to my gmail account. A bit convoluted, but if this is still making sense to you, it looks like google apps email hasn’t white-listed google messages.
Odd, no ? See screenshot below showing google alerts for a stock I follow, MVIS:
