Lionseye insights from AC Lion
Outlook has a spam blocker – great! You can check what it blocks, it takes time before auto deleting, and you can release to email easily. Sure it doesn’t block as thoroughly as you’d like, but you deal with it, because overall it works….
Then your company adds their own spam blocker. It’s super robust – it blocks everything!
That’s fine and dandy..but it blocks too much of everything! I just logged on to my spam blocker account for the first time in ages last night and it turns out it had blocked literally dozens of emails from clients and candidates who I thought were not responding to me.
Then this morning I get emails from two contacts telling me they hadn’t seen messages I had sent them months previously because my emails had gone into their junk boxes.
What to do? Any suggestions?
