Hi Alan and BB,

I also noticed this in GMAIL. It is important that people press the "not
spam" button in GMAIL, so that the smart filters do not detect it as spam
I believe Google aggregates these button presses and adjusts the filters.
So if enough people detect it as not being spam, it will get off the list.

Spam filtering is always a delicate task...especially in radio amateur
E-mails, where all the Q-codes and acronyms do not produce valid,
grammatically correct sentences ;)
