Email Notifications and spam folder

  1. Recently I have had a few readers tell them their comments are not showing up and then I find them in my spam folder. These are guys who have commented many times on my blog. Why now are they being tagged as spam? Neither one has changed their email addys. Also, a bunch of readers are getting emails asking if they want to subscribe but they all ready are and are getting annoyed with the frequent emails. Has anything changed on my blog that I am not aware of?

    The blog I need help with is advgrrls.com.

  2. Regarding the false positives in your spam filter if you repeatedly mark them as "not spam" Akismet will learn.

    The frequent email re: comment notifications is due to an announced change Staff have made to the default comment notifications. The default setting is now set so that if one does not remove the checkmark they get email notifications of all comments.

  3. P.P.S. Here's what Staff have to say about chnaging the deafult settings for receiving emails of comments > http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/you-must-change-the-tick-box-below-comments?replies=2#post-882382
