As discussed in recent blog post regarding Gmail Filtering, we know that Gmail’s stringent user based filters can mean problems with deliverability to the inbox and serious headaches for bulk email senders. Below are some of the frequently seen causes that prevent deliverability to Gmail Inbox:
Phishing can be seen when emails (spammers) try to trick Gmail users
into sharing sensitive information. These messages are dishonest,
unwanted by the recipient, and have the underlying intention of causing
Unconfirmed Sender – When Gmail is unable
to confirm the identity of the sender messages due to invalid or lack of
sender data emails can be blocked.
– When messages display characteristics of harmful or unidentifiable
characteristics such as sales of illegal products or unsuitable language
it will send the email to spam and warn the user of the contents.
User Preferences – If a Gmail user has previously marked a message as spam it will automatically be filtered to the spam box.
of the above causes can be overwhelmingly annoying when you are a
reputable sender mailing to users who have previously opted in to
receive your mailings. Keep in mind, however, that these settings
prevent you, as a user, from being scammed or annoyed by constant
unwanted emails of threats.
