Automated confirmation email


Recommended Posts

[indent=1]Four days ago, I sent my idea for the "spell design contest" to contact@magicduel.com. I received an automated email with the subject "Your email requires verification verify#....long code....." and the content "The message you sent requires that you verify that you are a real live human being and not a spam source. To complete this verification, simply reply to this message and leave the subject line intact. The headers of the message sent from your address are shown below: blah...blah...blah ".[/indent]
[indent=1]After that, I just clicked reply and sent it back without touching the subject or writing anything. The result was to receive another similar email with the same subject (but different long code) and the same content. I repeated the verification process, just in case I did something wrong the first time, and I received a new similar email :wacko: .[/indent]

[indent=1]This happened again today when I sent my high resolution scanned image for my custom avatar as prompted.[/indent]

[indent=1]What am I doing wrong? and if I finally manage to solve this, do I have to send my emails again or my previous emails will be delivered regularly?[/indent]

Depending on your client, you might have sent the e-mails not with the same subject line, but as Re:'long subject line'. That puts you on the spam bot list.

Delete the Re: before sending, and you'll be fine.

If you've really clicked reply without altering the subject line the only explenation I can come up with is that your email program (or webmail) has altered it. Would you specifiy which emailprogram or webmail client you use? Perhaps attempting a different one would solve the problem.


EDIT: Burns beat me to it, and Re: is the obvious alteration. It's getting late that I missed that.
