The Case of the Missing Serial Numbers (or Screw the Gmail Spam Filter)

September 4th, 2009

We’re currently experiencing a pretty hefty problem: A lot of customers are contacting us via email, saying they’re still waiting for the registration info to show up in their mailboxes.

Turns out 99% of them are using gmail.com — which, plain and simple, is treating our registration email as spam.

Now, I find this rather curious, and to be honest, I’m angry as hell, but before I let my temper run amok, I’ll take a deep breath and just leave it at this. For now. It’s pretty obvious that Google have messed up their spam filter for good; just do a… haha… google search on gmail filtering legit mail, and you know which provider NOT to use for day-to-day correspondence.

I bet their confirmation mails still get through, but whatever.

Sooooooooo, if you’re wondering why you haven’t heard from us regarding your registration: Check your spam filter and go blame Google. You should do this more often anyway. Blaming Google, that is.
