Lost email

A few of my assignment emails have either ended up in the spam folder or otherwise been lost in the system. I was just wondering if there is anything that I can do to help avoid this. Would it possibly help if I used a different email account to submit the assignments from?

Just a few questions......
Are you submitting all of your assignments from the same address each time? Are you sending them to the same address each time? Is there any difference between the ones that get through and the ones that get lost that you can think of? Try resubmitting your last assignment and I'll send up a flag to the nitpickers.

Hi Carol,

Each of the assignments was submitted from the same email address. I think one of my initial submissions (to "nitpick"), and one or two of my follow-up submissions to individual nitpickers, were possibly eaten by the spam filter. There doesn't seem to be any pattern. I'm probably just being paranoid, but I thought maybe something about my email address is attracting the attention of the filter algorithm. I'll keep using my same email account for now and see if it happens again...maybe it was just a fluke.

Actually, all but 1 of your emails ended up in my spam folder, but I'm really anal about checking my spam folder, so I think I was able to unspam it each time.

I don't have any constructive corrections, unfortunately.
I agree. Here's the link:
