What Happens When I Mark an Email as Spam on Google?

Every unwanted message can be marked as spam. You can mark spam in Google from your computer, Android, or iPhone device. As you mark more emails, you help Google recognize similar emails and learn what kind of messages you consider spam. Once labeled, the email is sent to your spam folder. Right after you tap Report spam, Google receives a copy of the unwanted email and analyzes it to protect users from abuse and spam.

How to Label Email as Junk in Gmail

When you label a message, the email itself doesn't disappear from your Inbox—it’s simply moved to a different folder. This means that marking a certain email as spam isn’t the same as deleting it.

This begs the question—why should you even bother marking emails as spam? The main reason would be that, by doing so, you’re helping the email service providers combat the issue.

If enough people mark emails from a particular sender, their sender score will drop significantly. This will result in the bulk of their email marketing messages going straight to spam in the future. In a way, you’re getting back at spammers by ensuring that their annoying emails never reach anyone’s inbox again.

Here's what you have to do if you want to label emails as junk in Google:

  • Log into your Gmail account
  • Click the checkbox on the left-hand side of the email you want to mark as junk (you can select one or more emails)
  • Click on Label sign
  • The drop-down menu will open
  • Click Junk
  • Click Apply

What Does It Mean to Add Emails to Spam in iOS Mail?

Relocating an email to the spam folder on an iPhone device means that you're moving it from the current folder while—at the same time—informing the email provider about the sender's activity. In the iOS Mail app, the spam folder is called Junk.

Most ESPs (Email Service Providers) will monitor which types of messages the users frequently send to the Junk folder and use that information to update their spam filters.

Free Yourself From Spam Emails and Get Compensation!

In case there's a Class Action lawsuit against the sender, DoNotPay will inform you so that you can join the lawsuit if you wish. If the process results in a settlement, you will see a flag in the Spam Collector tab on your DoNotPay dashboard. There’s no better way to get revenge on email spammers!

Bear in mind that a class action suit is possible if the spam email you received is illegal. This is the case if you did not give consent to receive promotional emails from the sender, or if the email does not have an unsubscribe button.
