[Plugin: Contact Form 7] Gmail marking emails as spam

  • Hey Brian,

    I’ve been experiencing the same problem here, Gmail is not receiving any of my messages. I don’t think it’s a Contact Form 7 issue though, try to look into SPF..

    Hi,
    Same issue here. Does anyone have any experience with this issue? I have heard about adding an SPF record but not exactly sure how to configure…
    Thanks
    David

    This can be fixed rather easily.

    Under the “Mail” tab, change the email address in the “From” box to a recognized email (probably your own personal email would work best). And then make sure that you have the sender’s email address somewhere in the message body.

    See an example image of this here.

    bobegods,
    Thank you for your help. I have tried what you have suggested but no luck. More specifically, I am getting a 553 error, administratively denied, from the relay server.
    godaddy is telling me the name of the relay server needs to be in the code somewhere.
    See the error I am getting here.

    My first guess would be because Gmail considers that sending yourself an automated program from your own email address would be spam, so it would reject. I could be wrong but that’s my guess.

    I would create a new email account on your domain and use this solely for this purpose: forms@yourdomain.com … etc. And then use this email address in the “From” line. I’ve done this several times before. In fact, I set another one yesterday and it works great.

    Also, you can go into “Settings” in your Gmail account and add a “Filter” that allows you to select an email address and point it to which folder you want it to come in to.
