Why Is My Email Going to The Spam Folder?

With any email service you will always have some emais end up in the spam folder. Every receiving ISP is using different spam filtering techniques and some ISP's utilize really aggressive filters to combat spam.

Things you can do to improve your email delivery:

By following some pretty simple concepts you can dramatically reduce the chance of email being filtered.

Avoid copying anything directly from Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc..
When you paste content directly from these applications additional characters (that you do not want) will be automatically added.
Don't send a single image in-line
You should take the time to design an email with text and graphics. Sending an email that only contains a single image is a sure way to have delivery issues.
Content does play a major role in filtering email.
Avoid using all caps, spammy sounding content
Pay attention to your links in your email
Don't include links that use link shortening services
Spam filters check the URLS that you are linking to. If you link to a domain that has a poor reputation you will be penalized. Additionally you should avoid linking to URL's that contain folders with 1-2 characters (such as domain.com/e/something/ or domain.com/es/) as some filters will count that as a negative thing.
Don't use a free email address as your "from" email
Instead of using your free/personal email address such as Gmail or Yahoo you should use the email address provided by us.
Never include Javascript, form code, or video within your email
