Why peeking in the Junk Mail or Spam folder is important

| May 23, 2012 | 0 Comments

Simple blog today folks.

I hear this on occasion, “I found your email in my junk folder,”  so I felt there was value to writing up a blog about the junk/spam folder. When I am remoted into a computer repairing Outlook, I usually have to do an email test to insure it’s sending/receiving and many times…my email doesn’t show up on the client’s computer. The same email is in my inbox, but when I reply, it’s in their junk folder. It wasn’t junk! It was a test email and that should not be flagged period. But it is. The subject line was just “test”.

We have two things to discuss.outlook-ad-300x130

  • Subject lines can get an email into junk
  • Any email can get into junk

These two things are important to remember and you might have important emails sitting in your junk folder. I check mine daily and find tons of little goodies sitting in there. Emails from colleagues, clients, my staff, it doesn’t matter…it finds its way there. A good reminder for you is to check your junk/spam folder on occasion and make sure you’re not missing an important email.
