Let me try to help a bit here: they _are_ _not_ being labelled as spam on my 
gmail account (not anymore).

And I *do* have an idea how can you claim that they are --- because apparently 
every gmail user teaches his own "version" of the spam filter. Select all 
Timothy's messages you have, click on the "not spam" button, and hopefully 
gmail will stop labelling them as spam. If it does not, repeat the above until 
it does.

It appears that the spam teaching capabilities in gmail are a "per user" thing 
--- you need to teach gmail about this *yourself* for your account. The fact 
that some of us did it for our own accounts has nothing to do with yours.

In my case this teaching has been quite successful, it required just a handful 
of messages to learn. The problem never appeared again. This was several 
months ago, IIRC.

HTH, :-)
