Emails going to spam folder in gmail

You're kidding? I actually *wrote* the entire E-account, E-Alias, and 
E-commerce system used by the IEEE Computer Society back in 1995, and I 
keep my membership because of the mail forwarding to my home address.

Amazingly enough the forms I developed are still used, and I'd guess the 
back end code as well. Not bad for 25 years.

I left the Computer Society in 2000 after that complete fuckage takeover 
trick by Daniel Senese from the IEEE. Since then they haven't done much 
of a thing to support either computing or technology. Innovation there 
pretty much died...

The fact that they would use a non-standard, monopoly, proprietary, 
privacy stealing email solution is just not a surprise at all.

Ah well, things happen. We did have an amazing run there for 6 years but 
all good things....
