For some reason, when my site gerneates an auto response, it is junked by outlook. Can not figure out why.

Anyone got some experience with this sort of thing?

Subject

Your (sitename) account activation link.

Body

Please click --== HERE ==-- to activate your account.

where "HERE" has a link on it to [sitename.com...]

If I send it as a text email... it gets through, if I send it as a multi part.... it gets junked. Of course, if I send it as text, the activation link does not work anyway....

When you say junked, do you mean that your spam-filter thinks they are spam, or do you mean that the URL gets "scrambled"?

If it gets cought by spam-filters, I guess you are missing some headers.
I also read something about if the headers say x-mailer or whatever is "standard", that some junk-filters will catch it as junk.

eg. please specify more data/code, if possible.

What I mean by junked, is n outlook, even on the lowest setting for junk mail fitler(the default) this email gets placed in junk.

Headers are:-

Problem found, and a very odd one.

It was because, I only had a few characters in the body. Click here to activate your link, with here, being the anchor text for a link.

As soon as I added another few lines, it worked.
