email sent out delivered marked suspicious, possibly spoofed

The email I just sent out, tested first to myself and then sent to all both delivered with bold warning it was suspicious and possibly spoofed. How can that be and how are the rest of our recipients going to feel about opening???


Hello @UgandanLambsUSA ,


You see this banner because your email address is effectively being spoofed. Since the test email and live email you're sending yourself are not actually coming from yourself, this causes your email program to display the warning as a precaution. Your recipients should not be seeing any banner like that.
