"The chances are that you are among the 42% of the people who ARE not receiving the genuine newsletters that you requested for".

Why this is so?

Increasingly, ISPs are using filtering systems to try and keep Sp^am out of customers' inboxes. Sometimes, they accidentally filter the email that you really want to receive. Many ISPs and Mail servers automatically filter email that they interpret as "spa^m" without your knowledge.

Being automated, these systems are not perfect. Many authentic communications gets caught in the filters. The result is, you end up loosing critical info that you may be looking for.
