    I wrote this as a follow up to other users who seemed to be experiencing this problem but as of yet havent received any reply.

    When a customer submits a form and it comes into my email and I reply to them I found that just recently (for not apparent reason) I stopped hearing back from my potential customers. Several called and when I told them by phone that I had replied to their message they searched and found my reply in their spam folders.

    I read on the forums that my "complicated" subject lines might be causing this problem. I didn't think they were complicated but I simplified them and this issue is still happening. My customers submit requests for service and when I reply they never get it. 

    This is a very expensive problem. Has gmail updated its spam filter or something? How do we fix it?

    We had a problem before with emails, but it was with submissions going to the spam folder for Gmail accounts, may be that this is a related issue; however, our back-end team worked to resolve the problem and it could also be resolved by marking emails from JotForm as not spam, this should help to avoid Google to avoid marking JotForm emails as spam. 

    I  have also tested your form, submitted  it and replied to my submission, I received the email in my inbox folder, here's a screenshot: 

    Could you please also try to reply to one of your submissions again and confirm if it is being sent to the spam folder? 

    Please do let us know how it goes.
