Your mail may not go through

An informal test shows that 11.7% of legitimate e-mail isn't going through, because of over-eager spam filters. I can attest to that. There's around a hundred mailing lists on my server, and one of the things I do for a living is to write programs that manage newsletter mailing lists. As a server administrator it is a continuous battle against being blacklisted or filtered out for lots of invalid reasons. Spam filters will often act very inconsistently, and stop a certain newsletter going to some people, but not to others.
