Email gets marked as spam


#1

I am trying to setup a contact form. I can get mails to send through SMTP connection. But they are being flagged as spam because

" Why is this message in spam? It is similar to messages that were identified as spam in the past."

Here are my settings:

Mail Engine: SMTP
Content type: HTML
Email from: riley@evergreenbicycleservicellc.com
Email to: eggeriley@gmail.com

SMTP Settings: these are as provided by my host. They work fine on other CMS sites, like joomla

SMTP Server: mail.evergreenbicycleservicellc.com
SMTP port: 465
Encryption: SSL
User: riley@evergreenbicycleservicellc.com
pass:

Is there way to get this message to send with it not being marked as spam :smiley:?

Two top things to avoid are (1) including links in the email, and (2) using HTML. Easiest thing to try first is just changing from HTML to plain text.
