[NRVR-Members] On GMail and Unwanted E-Mails

Wrapping back to the "GMail sometimes flags NRVR list traffic as spam"

I've realized that it actually hasn't done it to me in quite a while.  I've
been looking at the headers of the things that do get tagged there, and
discovered a few interesting things (well, interesting to the IT-geeks
among us, at least).

There's nothing in the headers that says "this is spam".  Actually, I have
several examples with SPF, DKIM and ARC all "passing", but it's still
flagged as spam.

Finding that, I did some research, and found that Google will flag things
as spam that are "similar to things you've reported as spam in the past".
Everything I've had from the list that got flagged, I used their "this is
not spam" button, so, maybe they have some sort of Bayesian thing going on
as well.

Long story short, it would definitely be interesting to see the headers on
something that's from the list and gets flagged, but I think I won't be
able to provide it at this point.
