Why won't Gmail accounts receive my Constant Contact email?

Please let me how I can change my newsletter so that gmail accounts don't see them as spam. It is very frustrating. Even my own gmail account won't receive my newsletter.

Hello @LauraB168 ,

 

Here are some general best practices for delivery.

 

Delivery 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 additional authentication for your emails - whether that's through us if you have a free domain (e.g. Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, etc.) or via self-authentication if you have your own domain (such as through a business or other organization).

 

If you'd like to learn more about safelisting, and what it entails:

 

Safelisting domains in a security system

 

Safelisting email addresses in an email client or security system

 

If you're wanting more in-depth, specialized insight on your current deliverability, it'd be worth speaking with one of our Delivery agents.
