    Hi there,

     

    It appears that emails which are sent as an auto-responder via JotForm are going into Google Promotion inbox.

    This is problematic as the emails sent out are not promotional and are an update on the action requested via our Jotform.

     

    Please can you advise how we can stop Jotform Auto-responders from going through to the Promotion inbox.

     

    Cheers,

    2. Try using a different email address

    3. Try changing the Sender Name from the email setup wizard

    4. Ask your customers to whitelist your email address
