Has anyone else encountered this problem? Is it wide spread enough that it is something that I should be concerned about, or do you think that this is a problem that will continue to grow?

I am surprised that Outlook did this, as surely it would be a filter set by the user or alternatively some ISP solution.
very strange, can you shed any more light on the problem.
I am actualy an old user (weblamer) but the machine I normally use died, and I forgot my password, and when i tried to retreive my password, webmasterworld said the user name did not exist. <shrug>
I am afraid i can not shed any more light on the situation that I have already stated. I did not know outlook possesed such a filter, and it seems to me that the word 'sales' was something this guy set up on his own.
However if anyone else has experienced this, i would love to hear it.
This is easily overcome by changing your address, try help@, services@ or info@.
It is set in newer versions of Outlook Express (2002) by selected a 'Block spam' option.
See [office.microsoft.com...] for actual rules applied.
Also noticed one of the triggers is "Body contains check or money order." Sounds a little extreme. When someone asks how we accept payment for our vacation homes, the reply is "check or money order." So Microsoft will block those as spam.
The downside of aggressive spam filtering...
