Question

Email always going to SPAM on Gmail, Hotmail, etc.

Hello, I have configured SPF, DKIM, etc. on my server, also looked if the ip is not blacklisted, but still my emails always go to SPAM.

Here’s the email headers that I get when I receive an email on Gmail (and goes to SPAM)

Hello, all

You can make sure that your mailing list is fully opted-in and that you’re using SMTP authentication.

Also to test the mail score of your emails you can use a website like:

https://www.mail-tester.com/

and then send a valid test - an exact email with a valid - subject, message body, full signatures and attachments.

Regards, Alex
