You're amazed that mail occasionally falls by the wayside nowadays ?
Where have you been living the last decade ?
Spam levels on the public internet are running at _at least_ 90%. For
some recipients, it's much much higher. This means that to even a
small erroneous acceptance rate can render an email flow unuseable
because of the spam volume. This in turn means that not-optimal
antispam measures are deployed in desperation.
This situation is probably not going to improve until the people who
currently run the world are replaced with a new generation who have
suffered this problem personally.
