does anyone think hotmail is...

Does anyone think hotmail is blocking legit emails?
Because their spam filter has become really good and I used to get 100 spams a day, now I'm lucky if I get 5.

I know I used to get some newsletters that I never read and sat in the junk email folder, but it looks like those emails might not even be coming in now.

I did actually signup for those newsletters so they technically aren't spam.

Spam filters, no matter how good, will always miss some real spams, and block some legit mail. There is really no good way around this. I get around most of it because all my friends and I have PGP keys and I have my spam filters not block mail with PGP keys I can verify but that doesn't work for people without PGP obviously.
