Hi Steve, and others,

A few months ago, we made some changes to the configuration of the TDWG 
mail server in order to combat spam.  This should have made it less 
likely for mailing list messages to be classified as spam or similar.

If you receive messages sent to the TDWG lists that are classified as 
spam, please send me the message headers.  How to do this depends on 
your email software; you'll need to find a large block of text that has 
lines similar to

Received: from lists.tdwg.org ( by
  AM1FFO11FD009.mail.protection.outlook.com ( with Microsoft SMTP
  Server id 15.1.669.7 via Frontend Transport; Tue, 25 Oct 2016 00:18:38 +0000

I can then investigate whether this is a misconfiguration of the TDWG 
server, or an excessively cautious mail server at your institution.
