gmail and defence-force emails

Post by Dbug » Fri Oct 12, 2018 6:56 pm

Hi,
some of you are aware that I'm having problems with gmail: Many of the emails I send end-up in people's spam box.

For those of you using gmail: Is there a way to open the spam folder and see the header of the emails to see why they were flagged as spam?
It's getting very tiresome to have email exchanges with people to find out they did not know why you stopped answering them...

I have the same problem with my own domain name (using Gandi).
Things got better when I used the Gandi mail server to send mails (rather than Free); I read that Google compares the mail server and the domain name from the email address.

That being said it still happens that people get my emails in spam folders. If there's another additional trick, I'd be glad to know ;)

Normally I'm using gmail with Mozilla Thunderbird POP/IMAP client and it's easy to see headers.
From Web interface: first open the message and then click on the 3-dots at right and select "Show original".
I hope this is what you need. :)

Actually what I need is for *you* to tell me if you see anything wrong in the mails I send when they reach your spam folder :)
I don't use gmail myself :D

Click on the question mark links to G00gle's Bulk Senders Guidelines
My gmail settings have nothing special set (or unset) for spam, filtering, privacy and etc.
... and yes, I do not rely on gmail at all I'm using it just for such tests :).
EDIT: Of course I reported the message as NOT spam.

May be because in the past, I told gmail that your emails where not spam...

@waskol
You should erase your email name in this thread, otherwise naughty robots will disturb you... :roll:
