    My e-mails are going to SPAM folder

    Asked by cobtravel on April 19, 2017 at 08:24 AM

    It seems as if our notifications are being help up and recognized as spam. I have made a rule for the incoming email, entered the SMTP info and still have been unsuccessful to get the email to not enter the junk folder. Any suggestions? I believe this is why I couldn't see it working yesterday, but when you ran your test, it worked just fine.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I've checked your e-mail logs and I could see that your one e-mail was failed. As you can see below screenshot:


    Then, I have checked this e-mail log on our side. Here is a result:

    [2017-04-18 15:53:04] Submission #3683543848227161034 Form #70903426726154 FAILED to cobhelp@ohio.edu from smtp:totha@ohio.edu, via SMTP

    Your e-mails was failed after you set SMTP, it means your SMTP credentials for "totha@ohio.edu" are wrong. 

    Please check your STMP setting again and if the issue still persists let us know.
