It can happen to anyone.
Literally nowadays it seems that I get more real-life spam mail through my mail slot, than I do email spam. However I noticed, that sometimes even in my bulk mail whether it be tangible or digital, sometimes the good stuff gets mistaken as malicious or garbage.
As someone who does quite a bit of email marketing and just everyday correspondence to thousands of users, it just takes a few old “spam clicks” or garbage flags from a shared household email account (because we all know little Joey signed up for the latest Video Game Newsletter) to flag your legitimate essential communication from your domain to now be directly thrown into bulk or spam.
And to make matters even worse, if too many people mark things as spam now, email from your domain maybe be totally blocked or even blacklisted (something real mail would never do).
So, I will go into detail about proper email marketing on another post, however I found it very frustrating that when one of my domains’ emails were being blocked from major email services and ISPs that I just could not find the proper contacts to get them “whitelisted”.
My hard work is your gain, because below are some very helpful links for “whitelisting emails” or getting your domain unblocked off the non-delivery list.
