Email service bounce KA0MVK on 18/6/13
Earlier today I had an email get through from a friend who had forwarded a bounce from an earlier attempt. From the message, it looks like the spam filtering is what killed the message. Here's the bounce text:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

Subject: Job opportunity at my work

Sent: 6/18/2013 10:12 AM

The following recipient(s) cannot be reached: on 6/18/2013 10:19 AM

The e-mail system was unable to deliver the message, but did not report a specific reason. Check the address and try again. If it still fails, contact your system administrator.

< #5.0.0 smtp; 5.3.0 - Other mail system problem 554-'5.7.1 Mail (68649-13955) appears to be unsolicited - MessageScore (61) over limit (50) - contact for resolution' (delivery attempts: 0)>

Interesting that the mail service thinks it's an "unknown" reason, yet the response clearly indicates it was spam bounced. Probably not using the right codes in the response.

She sent this to me from her work email address, letting me know about some jobs that are opening up there since she knows I've been looking for a job. Seems it triggered the spam filter and it was blocked.

Since my forward goes through Gmail (which has REALLY good spam filtering), I'd rather just let everything through on my account and let Gmail deal with the spam. At least that way I have a chance to see an email that would have otherwise been bounced and decide if it is spam or not.

So is it possible to have the spam filtering turned off for my email forwarding?

Email forwarding service and Comcast! Going on about 3 weeks and this is stll messed up. It is like this service is now a SK!

Please see the e-mail I sent to your address.

Wondering if he got it, since it sounds like they aren't going through for him. ;-)

Same problems as others have posted.

TIme for ARRL to dump the contractor and use Gmail,
our university did that and it was the smartest move.

I'm already using gmail, my forwarding feeds to that. Not sure how I can get my email on there if I already have an account, should they decide to do that.

Over 80 percent of all email sent through the Internet is Spam. That can slow down all legitimate emails.

That may be, but I've done tests by sending through my forward and direct to the email account it sends to, the direct method ALWAYS happens nearly immediately (not more than a couple seconds transit time) and takes noticeably longer (never less than a minute), with forwarding intermittently taking a half hour or more at the last email server (which is waiting on to accept it).
