Please help! Email generated by Access -- wierd problem!

P: n/a
Here is the text of an email I recently received from a user of our
Access 2K application. This is totally baffling to me.

"WXYZ" = the name of our program for the purpose of this message.

"What I did was I sent every email in my WXYZ to myself.
Interestingly, most of the emails delivered. Out of 18, 6 wouldn’t
deliver. I tried changing the subject verbiage and then it delivered
to my inbox. Therefore, there’s an email filter somewhere that’s
blocking certain words. Comcast claims they have no email spam
filtering. I had my firewall and Norton antivirus turned off, so it’s
not that either. I went into my Outlook, Tools, Options, email
preferences, junk mail setting to the lowest possible and the emails
still wouldn’t deliver. Once I changed some of the subject line words,
the emails come to me. What’s strange is that if I copy and pasted the
exact WXYZ email including the same subject line that wouldn’t deliver
from WXYZ, and placed it into a new email and sent it from Outlook, it
delivers. That makes it look like my Outlook is not filtering my
emails based upon the settings I chose. But when it’s sent from WXYZ,
it appears as if it filters. Go figure!"

The mail is sent via automation from WXYZ application to the Outlook
outbox. From that point on, it SHOULD be like ANY OTHER message sent
from Outlook - correct?

Does ANYONE have a clue what could cause this?

Thanks folks.

What happens if it is sent manually?
