    after checking your email autoresponder, I can see that you have the default noreply@jotform.com Sender E-mail address configured this could be the cause why your autoresponder is marked as spam, could you try by using  your  custom sender email info@medwayprofessionals.co.uk or adding a new one by following this guide

    Hope it helps

    Hello 99clarkj,

    Do you think this spam issue could be because of the Hotmail Junk Mail Filter is set to "Exclusive". When it is set to exclusive, you will only receive emails from the email address which is added as contact in your hotmail account and rest all the emails will be sent to junk folder.

    In your hotmail account, have you already marked "noreply@jotform.com" as not junk? You can also add this email address as one of your contact. 

    Changing the Hotmail Junk Mail Filter to "Standard" should also help. Here is a guide to help you:  http://email.about.com/od/windowslivehotmailtips/qt/Set_the_Windows_Live_Hotmail_Junk_Mail_Filter_to_Standard.htm

    Do get back to us if any of the above options works for you.

    Thank you!
