Performance Enhancements

***Ok let me put this first. This post has got nothing to do with "Performance Enhancements"***

Now that i've clarified that let's get into the details.

My Awesome Spam filter!!! Thats what I should say.

So here is what happened. I ask my team at offshore to compile a document on how they could enhance the sluggish performance of the SQL server on which our application ran and they dutifully compile one and send it for my review. I wait and wait and never get it and I go furious and call them up at midnight to verify if they actually sent it or was it a dummy that they were playing on me.[Sorry about that Team :D]. After a while, I go onto clean my outlook junk box and bingo!!! There it is, sitting pretty and smiling at me.

So why did this happen??? The mail was titled "Performance Enhancements"(if you know what i mean ;)) and my host exchange server had a policy that tagged mails like this spam.
