    You were wondering why people where not getting the show notes. It looks like spamassassin, which a lot of ISPs use, is marking the messages as spam. Here is the results from the email when it went through my filter:

    3.176 DOMAIN_RATIO Message body mentions many internet domains
    1.097 PRIORITY_NO_NAME Message has priority setting, but no X-Mailer
    1.000 DSPAM_SPAM DSPAM claims it is spam
    1.000 AWL From: address is in the auto white-list
    0.177 MIME_HTML_ONLY Message only has text/html MIME parts
    0.146 HTML_80_90 Message is 80% to 90% HTML
    0.137 HTML_MIME_NO_HTML_TAG HTML-only message, but there is no HTML tag
    0.035 HTML_WEB_BUGS Image tag intended to identify you
    0.011 URI_REDIRECTOR Message has HTTP redirector URI
    0.007 NO_REAL_NAME From: does not include a real name
    0.001 HTML_MESSAGE HTML included in message
    0.001 BAYES_50 Bayesian spam probability is 50 to 56%

    It looks like the highest score is the rule that hits when an email mentions a lot of domain names.
