Notify Me Email/Spam Filter

Posted on September 16, 2019 at 11:10 AM by Ben Vivante

Good day all:

The Brookline IT Department has been made aware that meeting and announcement notifications coming from our Notify Me service 
appear to be going into user’s Spam folders in Gmail.  We believe this is due to a recent change that Google has implemented 
and we are working with them to verify that is the case and to resolve the issue.

In a general sense, email providers such as google often update their spam filter and it looks like that is what happened recently.  
The best protection against having misdirected emails is to whitelist important senders.  In our case, 
please be mindful to whitelist the following address: notifications@brooklinema.gov 

We apologize for the inconvenience and will continue to work with google and our notification vendor to 
have better communication going forward.
