proasp_codeclinic thread: Why does it think my mail is spam?


Message #1 by steve.owen@g... on Tue, 10 Jul 2001 18:10:12
A pat on the back for all concerned. Our company's general e-mail address -
 which is what this news digest is marked as being "from" - 
is "mail@g...". Of course Microsoft should assume that this is 
BAD. Changing the reply address to "digest@g..." worked a 
treat.

Thanks for pasting that stuff in. Much appreciated.

Cheers,
Steve
