It would have to do with your email server. Not us. We don't check that sort of thing.

You may wish to check upstream from you. With your provider.

Be aware that settings change overtime and what used to work might stop working as filters and such change, and change with no notice to you.

I do know we are sending out a TON of email. If there is a problem on our end we get lots and lots of complaints.

There's still a glitch the works, I guess, witness what MrsLMB and others have said.
I have my email set up to only accept mail from names I specify. All others go into Spam. Then, every day I go through my Spam, read my replies from DC and any other emails I want, then delete the Spam folder. I do that so I don't get so much junk in my regular email and it is easier to delete the whole spam folder than to delete individual emails.

I use Gmail and Chrome with Windows7. I'm not saying they're the best in the world but it does take care of spam quite efficiently on it's own.

I rarely get Spam in my Inbox.

On the few times I do I just click the icon marked 'this is spam' above the message.

Of course there are always a few dedicated sites that will get through---- even those I've asked to remove me from their mailing list!

But by and large I have almost no spam sent to my Inbox. I'm sure different browsers, email types, OSs, preferences etc. will react differently. That's the 'beauty' of the Internet.

The thing with DS (when the notifications were going to my Spam folder) was easily fixed by just adding DS to my contact.

Funny thing, though---- when I first joined DS I was getting notifications in my Inbox. Then that stopped. I guess how 'things' operate at sites are constantly changing.

You can set up a DC folder and create a rule specifying that email from DC goes there. I know it's a bit of a hassle to check another folder, but as Frank said earlier, DC can be penalized for emails from them being classified as spam.

Note: Of course people know that I meant DC NOT DS in my last post. Sigh.

It's not a hassle for me. I check several folders on 3 emails a couple times a day. I am retired and have nothing else to do anyway. LOL

So I have the new folder set up, but I'm having trouble creating the rule. So far it looks like I would have to create a rule for every topic in the forum. I'll play with it and figure it out.

I guess I'm odd man out. All my incoming mail goes to my INBOX. I read and deal with it all in one place and move on.

I used to be like that too, Andy, but I started getting so much Spam in there that I decided to set it up so just my email from friends and relatives goes into the inbox and the rest just went to spam. I didn't have to go through it and delete each spam email individually. I would just quickly scan the spam folder to make sure nothing important went there and then delete the whole folder. When I signed up to DC I noticed they were going in Spam and were not in with my regular emails and liked that. I was not aware until now that DC was penalized for it.

OK, I think I have the rule set up. I will come back later to see if it's working. Now it's time to watch my soaps. What a life!!
