psst, let's hang out today.
that means the mail server thought the original message was spam, so it sent it to you anyway but like that so that you could easily set up a mail rule to filter it as likely spam. unfortunately, it thought all of my support request notifications were spam (they included a 'unique' id (uh, the request number), and a way to remove yourself, and most of the blurty ones mentioned the age 18. hee. so i turned it off.
