Forum notifications go to spam
« on: April 09, 2016, 11:17:28 pm »
I'm guessing given the recent layoffs no one is going to look at this one, but I'll still post it just in case.

The forum notifications emails go to spam on my mail server with the default settings of the spam assassin. Not a problem for me - I can easily white-list, but something that Arcen might want to improve.

Here are the headers, note that edited out my real domain / host names.

Despite the layoffs, I'm still here (On a volunteer basis). :)

That's very odd. I'll definitely look into fixing that and seeing what, if anything, we can do from our end about that.

Today a notification came out fine (not in spam) with the score of 3.3. Unfortunately it does not add the spam headers on the "clean" eamils so I do not know what's changed.
