If your messages (copied to yourself) are getting caught in your spam filter, they may also be getting caught in the spam filter of your recipients.

So you might want to take a second look at how you are composing your e-mails that makes them get caught in a junk or spam filter.

Some things that I know cause my senders to end up in my spam filters:

-Putting the whole message in the subject line and leaving the message itself blank.
-Leaving the subject line blank
-sending only a bare web page link
-extremely short messages (like 3 or 4 words)
-Sending just an attachment with no other message
