I have been rather busy this week and have not been that diligent in checking my e-mails. I sat down this evening to go through all my e-mails from various e-mail accounts and was surprised to have received an e-mail from Nick Clegg on Monday, but not from Chris Huhne.
So I sat down to write an e-mail to the Lib Dems asking if the party was giving preferential treatment to one candidate over another. Before I got more than two lines in to my e-mail, I realised I ought to read all my mail and check that I hadn't received one from Chris Huhne too. After close examination, no I hadn't. So I started to write more of my e-mail, and then I realised I had a few e-mails in my Spam filter, which I hadn't checked.
And what did I find ? Microsoft Outlook had decided that the e-mail from Chris was Spam, but the one from Nick was not !
I wonder how many others have had the same thing happen. I know there are plenty of people who ignore what is in their Spam filter and never check it.
Is Nick Clegg's team doing something clever to avoid the Spam filter or has Chris' team done something wrong ? Either way, one nil to Nick Clegg in the e-mail battle.
