Just a note to say that MSE emails no longer arrive due to the high score given by Spam Assassin.
I will need to whitelist the email address, but thought I'd let you know (mainly for the benefit of those subscribers that do not know how to whitelist) in case you'd want to reduce some of the phrases, maybe check the html formatting and check that the DKIM signature is valid.
