Hi Jonathan,
I went over my spam mail folder I found your email, which is obviously not
spam.
I use gmail. This is what gmail said about your email:

"""
*Why is this message in Spam?* It has a from address in yahoo.com but has
failed yahoo.com's required tests for authentication.
"""

Strange. I wonder what are yahoo's tests for authentication.

Regards,
real.
