Messages and e-mail filters

Q -

I've noticed something about the e-mail filtering in Microsoft Outlook, that
may happen in other e-mail programs as well:

If you have the "Junk E-Mail" filter turned on, if you have more than 1
dollar sign "$" in a row in a message, the 'secret' filtering rules will
mark that as junk mail. This _is_ usually junk mail, but several listers
(myself included) throw a bunch together from time to time.

Just thought I'd warn people, since I used to have the junk mail filter
auto-delete everything, and I would be missing a lot of things.
