How to Change Spam Mail to Inbox in Gmail

Changing a mail from the spam folder to the main inbox is a really easy task. Emails often get misplaced and wound up in the spam or trash folders. In the Gmail platform fixing this is simple and fast. Here we are presenting a quick guide with images for better guidance, so you can learn to do this in the event you don’t know how already.

Before we get to the actual guide, take our word of caution. You should always check you spam and trash folders since the Gmail platform automatically deletes every email in those folders every 30 days. You can “restore” or move any email from those folders before it is eliminated for good. Also, keep in mind that Gmail has automatic filters. So, it is likely that if an email was placed in the spam folder there’s a good reason for it.

Below you’ll find a step by step guide on how to change spam mail to inbox in Gmail. You will also find a brief guide on how to prevent this from happening in the future.
