Gmail SPAM Chinese characters

Gmail account typically accessed using WindowsLive consistently shows in the JUNK folder (at last, based on restricting foreign characters), still continue to flow. I've done lots of research on the issue, and so many experience this same glitch.

Not sure whether to just quit migrating Gmail to my WindowsLive or whether to take more drastic measures.  On my Laptop, for example, whenever I use WindowsLive to do my mail from various different IMAP accounts that migrate there, and click JUNK or choose to ID "junk" from an entire domain, get errors saying "cannot etc....  What's up with all this, and what recommendations do you have?

I have current Windows 7 Ultimate on all systems, also have WindowsLive on all systems, keep things updated via WindowsUpdate, have McAfee Total Protection security, firewalls etc.  Something is running awry and I appreciate your insights to resolve.  The Laptop is the only system that typically won't let me just click JUNK and tag it.  

Thanks bunches,

Gmail puts email in Spam folder based on many reasons.  It uses hyseristics.

Best way to move prevent emails from getting into Spam folder are

1. Add the sender address to contacts list.  The contact will act as a white list.
2. Open the email in Spam folder and select NOT SPAM.  Gmail spam filter will learn after a couple of reports.

Thanks, war1.  Let me clarify.  Within WindowsLive, I have the various Email programs on a Laptop.  I've already configured the exclusion of foreign Emails with specific languages.  Most Email programs behave correctly in this environnment, but Gmail continues to bring them into either the Inbox or Spam folder.  When I check Gmail outside of WindowsLive, nothing exists there.  They migrate with Imap settings.  I've repaired WindowsLive and done all updates; that is truly an ongoing mystery to me.

The other issue on this same Laptop (all with Windows 7), is that there are sites that I've configured the entire domain to be JUNK and to block entire domains, as well as specific senders.  Yet, they continue.  I've checked the contacts list and neither the domains nor the senders are there.  When I click on them as they arrive again, WindowsLive presents an error saying this action cannot be done (to JUNK it).

Thanks.

Asta, I believe that Microsoft has optimized those options for Hotmail or Live.com. Do you those options work for accounts other than Hotmail and Gmail?

Thanks, war1.  I'll check it out when I return to that system.  As I recall, I've optimized (updated all Hotmail and Live interfaces on all systems).  What I'm unclear about is if ALL the Email accounts I have included on the one Laptop system with the problems have equal problems.  I will definitely return with updates when I can return to that system.

If memory serves me, the primary Email account from ISP does NOT have this problem, just the Gmail for personal and business interfaces have this problem, on this system.

Will advise and thanks again.  Long time no talk, appreciate your help and hope all is well with you.

Only Gmail when sent to the Laptop version of WindowsLive has this problem.
