Consider this observation from “Have you been checking your spam filter? Many of us don’t. We take for granted that the filter’s working correctly — protecting you from unwanted E-mail and leaving your Inbox filled with messages that you want to see. We all know that sometimes your spam filter mistakes spam for legitimate E-mails and allows them into your Inbox. But do you also know that sometimes your spam filter mistakes legitimate E-mails for spam, and filters them out of your Inbox? This can hurt your job search efforts.”
