How to Prevent Emails from Landing in Gmail's Spam Folder

Emails that land in your spam folder are unpredictable. Sometimes they do get in there, sometimes they don't. But, one of the simple tricks to prevent emails from landing in your spam folder is to ensure that you have the email address (noreply@jotform.com) added in your CONTACTS. But what if that doesn't work? Especially in email delivery of alerts coming from a website service, this is kind of common to happen.

With Gmail, you can prevent this from happening by adding EMAIL FILTERS. This will help you to explicitly make a sender, or even with just the use of keywords to put filtered emails to your INBOX.

To do this, start by logging in to your GMAIL account > click the GEAR icon at the top right > then SETTINGS.

On the SETTINGS page, go to the FILTERS AND BLOCKED ADDRESSES tab then click CREATE NEW FILTER.

Now, let's force GMAIL to not mark emails coming from noreply@jotform.com as SPAM. Let's create a filter by setting noreply@jotform.com in the FROM field then proceed by clicking the CREATE FILTER WITH THIS SEARCH link.

Setup your filter upon your discretion but make sure to tick both the NEVER SEND IT TO SPAM and ALSO APPLY FILTER TO MATCHING MESSAGES checkboxes. Click the CREATE FILTER button once you're done.

Now you have completed the filtering. But what should you do to apply this filter to a certain label that you defined in GMAIL, so that you can view all the filtered emails together? Please refer to our blog post to learn how to label emails in GMAIL.

This should filter ALL emails coming from noreply@jotform.com to your INBOX and never to your SPAM folder. It may help to add noreply@formresponse.com in your filter too.

    I am having problems with Gmail blocking emails altogether. They aren't even going to spam. GMAIL just won't receive them at all? Will creating a filter help with this? My emails are forwarded from a separate server and they are received there but some are just not received by gmail. How can i fix this?

    I want to know how to stop the emails that I am sending to customers with @gmail, from landing in their spam folders. This happens ONLY with gmail and no other email services. The directions you provide are only for people with gmail, but does not address individuals sending to gmail. What can we do on our end??

    I sent you a message but accidentally deleted your reply!
    This is what happens: After a short period of time when I am composing, sending or just checking Googlemail, I check the Spam folder and most of my Read emails from the Inbox are in Spam! New messages go into Spam, no matter how many times I click on them and click "Not Spam". This just started happening suddenly. I have even taken out ALL the Filters and Blocked addresses and the same thing keeps happening, over and over my Spam folder fills up with Read and new Unread messages -- even an email I sent to myself ended up there.

    Suddenly ALL my mail, read and unread, suddenly keeps ending up in Spam over and over. It seems anytime I send a message or edit an outgoing message, all the Inbox emails go into Spam -- that's several times a day, no matter how many times I click on the emails and then "NOT SPAM.

  • rob

    On the receiving end this is fine. But what about the question: How do I stop Gmail from putting the e-mails "I send" in others' GMail SPAM folders?

    We suddenly have several customers saying that email from our Gmail domain email is ending up in their Spam during the last week. Users are using Microsoft O365, and GoDaddy.

    Did something change with our company Gmail Sending that we need to be aware of and address?

  • Niall Flynn

    Post the new Gmail interface this all went pete tong for me. Mails from large clients using proper email servers in spam, but yet all the Nigerian gold scams all top and important now. Somethings changed, this was the only reason I used paid gmail its really gone to the dogs since around Oct 2018.

  • Lindsay

    Unfortunately this tip doesn't work for me - GMAIL is suddenly prefixing my bank emails with "[SUSPECTED SPAM] ". Even doing this "filter" trick AND having the address "noreply@mybank..." listed as a Contact it still is doing it. A right pain!

  • Mekonnen Bekele

    I am very happy if my inbox email is not going to spam

  • Zafar Iqbal

    If we type receiver email address in To:it@gmail.com and create a filter never send to spam then all email receive in it@google.com will not go to spam .

  • jarek lecher spam

    error my email qqqooo@seznam.cz

  • Gergo

    It works! Sadly you can't set that all gmail account put your e-mails into the "inbox" folder, in place of "spam" folder, but at least our everyday contacts can do something with this. Google would have to fuck all it's security failures. Not just the user interface is inconvenient but it can't specify an innocent mail as "inbox".

  • Cesar Yaipen Passalacqua

    this only works for one client, but it doesn't fix the problem for the entire domain
