Legitimate mail to a group is marked as spam

Legitimate messages sent to a group might sometimes be marked as spam and sent to the moderation queue. To avoid delivery issues, you can adjust a group's spam controls to allow suspected spam messages to be delivered. This action is known as whitelisting a group.

Note: To limit the worst spam, messages marked as high-confidence spam are always rejected even if the group is whitelisted.
