Hello @WilliamP419 ,


I was able to test send your emails and receive them in my regular inbox right away, without any issues. However, I am not you, which is what your email program is likely having an issue with. When you send an email to yourself through us - test or otherwise - it has the chance to trigger a warning message or be spammed out depending on your email program's settings. This is because it's an email being sent to you, claiming to be from yourself, but actually coming from a different source (us). For you, it should be as simple as dragging the email into your regular inbox to teach your email program's algorithm to trust it. 


Here are some general best practices for deliverability. Deliverability can have a lot of variables, from elements on our side, on your side, on the recipient's side, and in their email system company's side. It's also a generally good idea to set up self-authentication since you're sending emails with an address that has its own domain.
