When you register for an e-mail marketing seminar and the presenter's confirmation e-mail gets sent to your SPAM folder. ;)

Lucky that the confirmation makes it to the spam folder.

After a rather acrimonious conversation with a director of a company about their ignoring support tickets it turned out that my email provider was simply refusing to deliver the responses at all, regardless of my spam settings.

The horrifying part is that we live in different countries, so there are at least two different email providers doing this, with no way to override. (This is a known issue which they have chosen not to do anything about.) Every few weeks--sooner if I find a POST to any /contact/ page in site logs--I have to paw through webmail manually.

Well, yes, there is a way to override: For reasons I can't begin to grasp, if I change my account from pop to imap, they don't filter out spam, but send all of it right along to my computer. Where it runs into further issues involving Mail's new-mail notifications. But if you haven't already tried it, it can't hurt.

Edit: I forgot the most spectacular detail. Some of THE PROVIDER'S OWN MAIL is sorted into spam. Not my local spam folder: their spam folder, which isn't sent to me.

haha, yeah, that is irony. I have that problem with my ISP. Strangely, some phishing mail purporting to be from the ISP got through. lol
