So I was wondering why I didn’t get the email glowforge sent. As a computing snob who looks down on anything less than a desktop it seems I’ve become dependent on my phone for non-work email. So I logged into my personal email account (at live.com - a Microsoft property) and there it was in the spam filter. They automatically delete emails in the spam filter after 10 days. New fun fact I learned today.
My phone’s email combines my multiple email inboxes, but it doesn’t alert me to new “spam”. The email app hasn’t trained me to regularly check my spam folder. Combine that with the small screen area and the trend to streamline and simplify apps and there is potential for unfortunate events. As my provider deletes “spam” automatically there is a good chance many legitimate emails have gone this route. Not an issue when I have my email open on a monitor and see everything at a glance - darn you increasingly misnamed phone.
There isn’t a lot glowforge can do about this, so I guess it is just another reminder to regularly check your spam filter. Hopefully clicking on the not spam option white-listed anything from the glowforge domain.
And Rita, if I don’t respond to you when the glorious day comes, please know it’s the phone and not me.
