I received the following spam (I included the header) when reading my email by alpine email client. Strangely this email does not appear in any gmail web interface folders (including spam folder).

My question is how is it possible? I changed my real email username by 'mygmailaddress'.

  • Silly question but can you try searching for this email in your GMail interface? I've had a few issues in the past where emails are not seen, yet a search does detect them – Dave Oct 12 '14 at 8:10
  • @Dave I confirm that after your suggestion I found it by a search in the gmail web interface. Gmail' search claims it is in the Inbox, but when opening the inbox I cannot find it. – Name Oct 12 '14 at 8:16

Perform a search using the GMail web interface usually finds the "missing" email (or the stray).

For some reasons, emails don't always show where you expect them (and I've had this issue in many web and software based clients). I've had issues where I can't find an email and it turns out to be in an unexpected folder, or a folder I couldn't access or it was a glitch in the program.

Typically a search in gmail finds the email, at which point you can delete it (or do what you need to).
