How much of your e-mail is going lost?

I often ponder that exact question when I hit send. The majority of time I think the e-mail makes it but there have been times when e-mail just goes missing. Last night I sent out over a 100 invitations to podcasters I have been following online inviting them to to become content producers on the Podcaster News Network how many of those went missing is unknown but it can be scary.

Next week I send out over 500 e-mail to parties that have been clamoring for information about a new podcast site we are launching called Blubrry I am very concerned that some of those e-mails will just get sucked up and destroyed by Spam filters. But in the case of one company that was bidding on a school contract the school awarded a contract that cost them $250,000 more because a spam filter tagged a inquiry the school had sent out on the bid. Bad news for the contractor, bad news for the taxpayer and with both parties headed to court more money will be lost.

So just how much e-mail is your company loosing? []
