This is a problem, I know. Spam blockers are helpful and cut down on a lot
of "junk." I use it on my old email address. I don't expect people to HAVE
to respond, so I check my "Suspect" mail daily and manually move the message
and email addresses to my inbox and add the contact to my address book. It
doesn't take but a couple of minutes.
My suggestion to those of you who do use Spam blockers is to add a PS to
your signature that this may occur and that you will check your messages in
a timely manner. While I do offer this suggestion I have to admit that I
forget to do it myself sometimes.
The email address I'm using now is new and I haven't had to resort to using
a Spam Blocker. So far I have not received any junk messages.

Subject: [TMG] Asking for Help and "Challenge/Response" SPAM Blockers
To repeat a topic from a while back...
Some users have adopted one of the so-called "Challenge/Response"
SPAM Blockers, which block all incoming mail that's not from known
addresses. No doubt they are effective at blocking undesired mail, but
they also can block mail you want.
I just received a private request for assistance on sources for a
divorce. When I sent the response, it was "bounced" with a notice that
she only accepts mail from approved senders, and I should fill out a
form to get approved.
Sorry - I don't do that. If you ask for help, be ready to accept my
reply. If you aren't, you won't get it. And, putting the address you
mail to on your approved list, if you got it off my website, won't
help, because that won't be the address I reply from.
A word to the wise for those who might be wondering why they never
received responses to their enquires.
