    Gah, the email telling me that my sub here had expired had gone to spam. Again.
    Any chance of some highly visible indicator on the site when your sub runs out? Or even a theme switch? I would've resubbed a month ago had I realised.

    While those would indeed help, whitelisting the address that sent the notification email could also work, and would require a lot less coding.

      Yeah I have now put in an explicit filter to prevent messages from that address being classified as spam.

      Normally hitting the "Report as not spam" button once is enough for me, but for SN for some reason it's been a recurring thing.
