Is there a limit to the number of emails I can send?

Outgoing messages must also conform to the limits of 10,000 total recipients per day (including the To, CC, and BCC fields) and 100 recipients per message. A large number of recipients can best be managed by creating a Google Group (mailing list) that contains those recipients and sending to its single address. For more information on limits, see:

Connect learns from user corrections and over time automatically adjusts the classification to match users’ preferences. There are several options when using the Connect web interface to "teach" Connect what is spam and what isn't:
