gmail in the trash can

All of a sudden most of my gmail is being sent to gmail trash instead of the inbox. Not all but most. I tried to correct this by manually moving each mail piece to the inbox but the next time the affected mail comes it is trashed. It seems that most of what is being trashed is for the most part regular mail from friends, family & commonly used sites. MSN mail not affected. I am running a 2010 imac desk top. Any ideas? thanks, Bob

I don't use gmail, but it sure sounds like a rule (filter, spam filter) got set that includes way too much of your mail. I'd start by carefully reviewing your rules, especially any you changed recently.
Worst case: delete all rules and start from scratch.

Hopefully, someone here can answer your question but it's a gmail issue that's independent of the computer or OS you're using. There are several forums that deal specifically with gmail issues. Here's the official Google gmail forum and I bet someone there will be Johnny-on-the-Spot with a solution for you.

When you get an answer please post it here on the SMUG Forum so the rest of our gmail users will benefit.
