An internal email from one of our software engineers.

I thought I would share this with you because it makes sense and can help you get your email through.

--------------------------------------------------

"Recently we've been getting marked as spam a little more often than normal. I investigated into why and it appears that some people are using the "I" in their signature to represent a pipe "|". This makes spam filters think our signatures are spammy, and thus, we get blocked."

Please verify that you are using a pipe character "|" when appropriate, and not a capital i "I". The pipe character is located on the key direct above the "Enter" key, and is the Shifted version of "\".

 Please make sure to update your signature in the Tech-Army Command Center and Outlook.

 Any questions, let me know, thanks!

LOL.  I needed that!  Be sure not to use the letter X either as the letter X has sharp corners and can get stuck in a router causing the delivery delay messages.  haha
