Check Commons mailserver configuration
Per ticket 280 - http://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/show/280 -
Andre, since member sign-up has been an on-going issue for us -- notification emails sometimes wind up being caught by spam filters -- we want to review some aspects of the sign-up procedure. When you have a chance, can you check to make sure that the Commons mailserver is configured correctly? Boone says (and I hope he'll fill in the details below or contact you separately by phone/email) that there are certain aspects of mailserver configuration that ISPs look at when they're looking for spam.

Hi André -
Just to clarify: In the past, on my own servers, I've had problems with emails getting spammed because the reverse DNS isn't configured correctly. I'm sure you've already configured everything correctly already, so please don't be offended by what are surely obvious things that are very routine for you :) Just want to check all possible vectors of failure.
