Gmail regularly prompts you if you wish to continue receiving messages from this sender, and Google is aware of this issue.
An exclamation point in a hexagonal gray banner with this message appears at the top of an email. With a reference to a help article, you can reply “yes” or “no”:
Do you wish to receive messages from this sender in the future? Please let us know what you think of this message. Although you can always unsubscribe or flag it as spam in the future, we won’t question you about this sender again.
Around 8 a.m. PT this morning, Google became aware of Gmails continued to receive messages from this sender bug, but it might have started yesterday .
The ad displays far too frequently, even from well-known senders, such as Google Calendar event alerts, which is a concern for people who are affected.
On delivered emails in their inbox, users will get redundant banner messages asking them to confirm their desire to receive emails from specific senders.
Users may need to select yes or no for each banner that is shown.
Our engineering department is still looking into the problem.
The problem, however, only affects Gmail users and not Enterprise clients who pay for Workspace. On multiple accounts we tested this morning, we haven’t been able to recreate the issue, thus it might not be that common.
Google has since revealed how there is a time span that is impacted:
There is a problem with Gmail that affects emails delivered between 2022-07-06 20:36 PDT. There is a redundant banner notification in the users’ mailbox as of 2022-07-07 00:08 PDT.
Update 2: According to Google, both Gmail users and Enterprise customers are impacted by this problem.
Update 3: On Saturday, July 9, the problem was rectified.
