What traits make a junk email filter classify email as junk?
Posted on 2006-10-26
I AM NOT TRYING TO SEND SPAM.
That said, one of my customers is going through a merger and acquisition. As part of the process, they (meaning me) must email all their customers (50,000 or so) with a notice that they are being acquired and offering to remove anyone's name from the database before the acquisition.
I want to avoid my email from being classified as junk (actually I'd prefer everyone just ignore it so I don't have to process as many opt-outs, but gotta do the right thing). I sent a test message to my spare hotmail account and it landed in junk, but I don't know why. The gist of the email
From: PrivacyPolicy@MyClientCompanyInfo.com (this is a domain I control so I have set myself up as a good SPF mailer)
Subject: Notice regarding change of ownership of <my customers name>
Anyone have some suggestions on what I should avoid?
Did I mention I am NOT SENDING SPAM
