Bowl of Saki -- Delivery Problems

 

Beloved Subscribers,

If you don't find your daily Bowl of Saki in your inbox, please look in your "spam" or "junk" mail folder.

And, if you do find the Bowl of Saki in the "spam" or "junk" mail folder, please click on the email, and then click on the "not spam" or "not junk" button in your email program in order to help train your email filter to accept the Bowl of Saki.

Please note that using the "not spam/not junk" button in your email program is very important (especially with Hotmail, msn, live, Outlook, AOL, Yahoo and Gmail) because using the "not spam/not junk" button will help to train their email system to recognize the Bowl of Saki as legitimate email.

Also, it may be useful to add the Bowl of Saki domain name ( wahiduddin.net ) to your approved/safe senders list.  To learn how to add an email address to your safe sender list, click here for instructions.

For smaller email providers, such as in-house corporate email accounts, it may be necessary to contact the Technical Support department, explaining that you are having an email delivery problem and including the following phrase (including the IP address numbers at the end):

Please "white-list" my daily email subscription from wahiduddin.net (72.47.234.115)

If you encounter an email delivery problem, you can always read the daily Bowl of Saki on-line at:

Additionally, the Bowl of Saki is also available as an RSS feed.

Some email service providers occasionally reject the Bowl of Saki as spam, but fortunately, it doesn't happen very often.

The worldwide spam situation is a real mess. Each year, and especially around the year-end holiday season, the spammers re-double their efforts to try to get our money. According to some estimates, about 8 out of every 10 emails sent worldwide are spam! Amazingly, the spammers often send over 100 billion spam emails every day! (according to estimates from Cisco's Talos Intelligence)

Consequently, email service providers have a tough challenge in trying to figure out which 8 out of every 10 emails are the spam, and which ones are legitimate.

Many email service providers attempt to quarantine or discard the most obvious spam before they deliver the email to their subscribers. But, unfortunately, in the mindless computer automated process of trying to detect over 100 billion spam emails each day, sometimes the email service providers also discard or quarantine a small percentage of good emails (such as the Bowl of Saki).

Some of the automated spam rejection algorithms look for certain key words, or for unusual words, and consequently, the Bowl of Saki, with it's unusual words and the frequent use of "suspicious" key words such as love, lover and beloved is sometimes rejected as spam.

Enjoy!


Wishing you love, harmony and beauty,
