If I forward spam from my address will Google see me as spammer?

asked Aug 25, 2013 in Email by Karen (630 points)
I am trying to compare filtering spam between my gmail and email provider, I setup a forwarder in my primary email to my gmail. I get many spam accounts per day. Would my account (primary) be flagged as a spammer due to this activity? If anyone can tell me I would really appreciate it.
Thanks a lot

Forwarded emails shouldn’t mark the sending address as a spam source since Google looks at the email source not the relays chain
