I suspect email automatic responses & perhaps others are ending up in the Junk Mail be recipients software. What are suggestions to avoid that happening?

Correct. When you send email to someone who has not "in some subtle way or another, voiced individual interest in services such as ours", that is, by definition, spam.

I used to do blanket e-mail; but there were so many people doing that, and it became so voluminous for the average person, that no one appreciates it, likes it or reacts to it, except in anger. For several years now, I have changed to a more reactionary approach, trying to be receptive to people that have, in some subtle way or another, voiced individual interest in services such as ours. It is working much better for us.

Don, The simple answer is, "STOP SENDING JUNK MAIL!"

Whenever you send impersonal, automatic responses, they are, de facto, junk. Many of your recipients recognize them as junk, and report them as spam in their email clients. Their email provider (google, yahoo, hotmail, aol, etc.) pay attention to that, and mark all of your emails as spam.

Same goes for those emails you may have sent with 200 people in the cc or bcc fields. Those are spam.

It appears that the recipients have not appreciated receiving your emails.
