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.

Nope. I don't have that problem at all. That's a problem on their side of things, not yours. There's something about your email that is being interpreted as spam. Are you linking to any images as part of a signature, for instance?

T, thanks, well I may have received a few spam complaints, but I know anecdotally that Gmail is putting a lot of good emails from good other peoples quality/ legit newsletters, many people I've spoke to are having this issue. There are a lot of threads about it online. Driving me batty.

In short: Gmail is lumping regular small fry folks like me with million dollar Viagra spammers.

PS , and you may not know you have the problem unless you are in business and have a lot of prospective clients who email you from Gmail accounts.

I think we've had a thread about this, and your email has been tagged enough as spam that you should switch emails, code them differently, etc. Did you make sure you have an UNSUBSCRIBE link prominently located?

Yes, I did the unsubscribe Andi, and the issue was over, but came back.

I also Googled the issue and it's a huge issue, just Google gmail spam filter too aggressive and you'll see lot threads.
So flustered with it.
