Running Alert (EOEN_ALERT) sends email notification to user/s, however it going to the 'spam' folder.  Is this a bug or a setup that needs to be checked?

Steps to replicate:

1.  Create a query based on PS_CF_ATTRIB_TBL record.  Query Name = xxxxx
    (Reporting Tools > Query > Query Manager)

2.  Create another query based on PSOPRDEFN record.  Query Name = TEST_USER  (OPRID = ‘GLS1’,’GLS2’)
    (Reporting Tools > Query > Query Manager)

3.  Email address set up for User ID GLS1 and GLS2.
    (PeopleTools > Security > User Profiles > User Profiles)    

4.  Alert User List Definition:  Set up User List based on query = TEST_USER
    (Enterprise Component > Events & Notifications > Alerts > User List Definition)    

5.  Alert Definition:  Set up Alert Definition for Query Name = xxxx, indicating the User List set up previously.
    (Enterprise Component > Events & Notifications > Alerts > Alert Definition)    

6.  Run Alerts (EOEN_ALERT) for Query Name xxxx.    
    (Enterprise Component > Events & Notifications > Alerts > Alerts)
