My junk folder is almost always empty and never has this newsletter. I don't know how the sender knows; the person who answered my e-mail query said, "The tech support people say the newsletters are being delivered but not opened. Usually this means they are ending up in your email's spam folder, so you might check there." I don't know if that's possible or not. I can't believe I get so few junk e-mails on Apple Mail and 10-20 a day on my Earthlink account, which I don't see unless I look at Earthlink's web mail page.

That is a stock reply which may or may not actually be true. They have no way of knowing whether you opened it or not (if they did, I'd sue them for having installed something on my machine they can control).
I don't have an answer as to why you're not getting the newsletter (it could be as easy as a problem with their own server); however, as far as not getting any/few on Apple Mail, count your blessings. That simply means that spammers have not yet stolen/purchased your Mail address. My Yahoo address has been stolen/sold dozens of times - I am now getting spam there FROM me TO me. I have made it a practice to only give out my "real" address to close friends; my web based addresses are maintained to give out to anyone else and they are therefore also inundated with spam.
Try this: give your newsletter people your Gmail (or other web based) address and see if you get it there. A newsletter should always go to a "generic" address in case they make a habit of sharing email addresses.

Yes, I think you're right. If this is my only spam folder on Apple Mail, I'm very lucky! And good advice about not giving out your "real" address. I've been using my me.com address for almost everything. Thanks!

I had subscribed to a local newsletter, one of the Patch newsletters, and hadn't noticed they'd stopped coming several months ago. It turns out they are having trouble sending the newsletters to me.com addresses; it never showed up in my Inbox or my Junk mailbox, so I thought there might be another spam folder in iCloud or somewhere else. I understand now, and am grateful I get so little junk mail at that address.

I have a further question to my question. I assumed I would get my Patch daily newsletters once I contacted the Patch people and heard they'd had a problem with "me.com" addresses but it was fixed. I still don't get the newsletters, they aren't in my Junk folder, I use Apple Mail and have AT&T for DSL, and this is what the Patch person replied, "It looks like the emails are being successfully delivered to your account, so they may be in your Junk/Spam folder. If you do not find them there, please contact Apple for assistance on finding the emails, as they may be stuck in a filter on their end." Could you please tell me which department of Apple I should contact to find these e-mailed newsletters? Thanks!

I'm the eNews editor for a volunteer organization, Denver Trout Unlimited. I noticed that all of a sudden I couldn't receive the test emails of the newsletters I was creating. It turns out that one of the Google Picasa photos that I'd included in my news letter just happend to have in its randomly generated URL, the letters magic letters uri
This was magically picked up by Apple's SPAM engine, scored as SPAM and the whole email disappeared. I used the site http://www.emailspamtest.com/ to past in the email contents and find the culprit. I corrected the email, can get it now on my gmail.com account but still can't get it through the Apple SPAM engine. This is a huge problem if they have now flagged all emails from my denvertu account as SPAM. I'm still researching it.
By the way. I can tell if you open your email in most cases. If you just read it in preview or on some devices I might not, but I believe that most email programs send a message back to the sending email server to indicate that it was delivered and that it was opened. I can also tell after you open it what links you clicked on and when. This is true of all the websites you visit.
