Manual reply to confirm song submission not working for Gmail users

Post by Lunkhead »

Hi folks. Starting in the last couple days the reply emails I manually send to folks to confirm receipt of their songs have been bouncing back, when the person sent their song using Gmail. So if you're a Gmail user and you didn't get your confirmation email from me, that's why. If you ask for a confirmation in the prefight threads I will try to monitor those and reply there until this is resolved.

UPDATE: I actually paid a little more attention to what is happening. It seems like a service that our hosting service uses to try to block outbound spam is rejecting the confirmation emails because of the subject of the emails. I guess the title "I Am Very Busy" reads as spam when used as an email subject. Ugh. I don't have time to reply to everyone with a different subject though. Hopefully after this fight this problem will go away until the next time we accidentally use a title that some system thinks is a spam email subject. :roll:
