Anyone notice that their client receive their emails to their spam folder quite a bit? This even happens when initiate the email me first, and I reply. It's maddening.

Could this be related to or similar to the problem you had years ago with your email address having been marked as a source of spam?

Well that's the genesis, but my email is now whitelisted and testng good for spam. So I'm just seeing what others have to say.

Artie, you can take a break from my threads for a bit. Your responses have been a bit draining lately! Though I'm sure you mean well.

Here is the rule: When I post I'm looking for concrete answer to a annoying issue. Preferably someone who has suffered the same issue and solved it. I'm not looking for side questions and guess. Thanks!

This is a troubleshooting forum, kevs, and since troubleshooting should begin at home, with a look at what you may have done to cause your problem, it's certainly not the least bit snide, nor unreasonable, or even slightly off-base of me to suggest that since you've been tagged as a spammer in the past and have posted that you continue to send out mass-mailings you may have been tagged again...as your problem suggests may be the case.

I'll guess that searching the net didn't turn up a whole lot of people, if any, reporting the same problem you're experiencing...obviously not a solution, so you'd do yourself a favor by leaving yourself open to all ideas.

There a number of services that rate messges likelihood of being spam and thus chucked into the recipient's junk mailbox. Google's spam algorithm for example has 200 rating factors. The odds are it isn't your email address that is blacklisted, rather it is the content, format, and construction of your messages. There are services that will check the spam rating of your messages such as Mail-tester.com. A google or DuckDuckGo search for "spam rating checker" will turn up many others. I suggest submitting some of your messages to one or more of these services and find out what your spam rating is.

Beause of spam rating factors, our church found it easier and more reliable to quit sending the newsletter in email and instead sends a notification message with a link to the actual content in a web page. Even with that, because of the number of messages we send we still have to use Constant Contact to assure reliable delivery.

Your linked doc doesn't deal with spam, rather it's a compilation of the 200 factors Google considers when ranking search results. (Kinda ironic that it's the top hit in a search for "Google spam factors". tongue confused )

There's some insight into Google's spam detection techniques here, including...
