We have recently had a spate of people having problems where their Permies email messages are being flagged by their providers as spam or being sent right to the junk folder. We have had it happen also where the first email notification for a thread update will be flagged as spam, but a subsequent update from the SAME THREAD won't be flagged as spam. Many email providers have systems to report false-positive spam reports, or to register as a "bulk mail" sender. We just need to know when things get sent to the spam folder.
Its infuriating to debug this with just the staff, so would like to enlist you fine Permies to help us track down email spam issues!
Please check your spam folder and see if emails from permies are being marked as spam. If you notice a recent email that has been sent to spam, can you make a post below telling me what your email provider is (Gmail, Yahoo, comcast, etc is good enough) and what the title of the emails are. For example:

Thank you for the help in advance. Hopefully some extra data from you will help us figure out what is wrong, so we can fix it.
