    Hello Jeremy,

    There hasn’t been any changes to the email notification system lately but we’ll take a look at the rest of the mail system to see if we can spot something.

    Thanks for letting us know.

    Ha! That’s funny. I didn’t get Rafael’s first response, but I got his second one via email.

    I can also link to other responses that I haven’t received, if that helps.

    Email is a constant battle with ISP’s. Due to the issue being the way various email service providers are handling email from us, it’s more an issue of being able to convince mail providers not to send email into a black hole during our peak email traffic times.

    We’ll keep working on the issue and appreciate you guys letting us know what you are experiencing. Letting the Email service provider what is happening as well will help. Check spam folders and hit not spam if COW mail appears there. Add bessie, forums and other cow email addresses to your contacts.

    Thanks again,

    Hi Jeremy & Abraham,
    Curiously to me its happens only with “FC Basic Forum” posts.
    Of course Is not any issue; was just to point that somewhere there is a gremlin at work.
    I don’t think is any “Spam” related problem. I receive the COW posts on a “Hotmail’ account without any kind of Spam preferences.

    Mine happens across multiple forums. I don’t use hotmail, but another free email service. It is definitely not spammed and addresses are already added. I’ll see if I can contact them, and get a response.

    There was a change made on our end now which will hopefully help. Let us know if you notice any difference in the days ahead.

    Thank you, Jeremy. The best things users and leaders can do is contact their service providers and ask them why they are blocking Creative COW mail.

    They automatically assume that we are spammers because with 1.7 million users a month now, there is a lot of email that goes out from a site like this. Because they’ve never heard of it, they automatically assume it’s spam.

    We have grown to where we are so big — for a small company — that we are in “no man’s land.” We are big enough that we are being seen as a huge email source but not big enough to where they have come to realize that we are legitimate.

    Most mail gets through but there are days when some email gets delayed delivery — and in a very few cases, gets filtered to the bit bucket.

    Assuring your service provider that you want mail from Creative COW and that it isn’t spam — along with whitelisting us in your address book, etc. — is something we hope that you and other members will do to help get us through this period of no man’s land.

    Thank you.

    Best regards,
