Your boss is paranoid. Reading emails for the sake of SEO spam control is not something Google is doing. If they were caught doing that the Department of Justice would come down so hard on them they'd be lucky if they survived.

I do not see any big problem but Spamassassin is giving three hints on how to make the email look better: you get 2.5 points for having an image and only a few words. Remove the image or increase the text length you get 1.1 points for your formatting. Your Email is not correct HTML (e.g., is missing the <html> tag you get 1.2 points because you are ...

It sounds like Gmail is picking up the word 'Unsubscribe' from the opening line of your email newsletter, then displaying that in the message preview to the right of the subject line. The text I've outlined in red is the message preview in Gmail: Here's where Gmail pulls that from within the email itself: As you can see, the opening text of the email ...

The answer is YES, unless you also copy all your current DNS records to the new DNS server too. You should do that before you move your name servers, although some control panels don't allow that until they are officially named as your name server. In that case, you make the changes ASAP although mail flow will be delayed while they propagate. Why don't you ...

If you poll the email account too often you will get this error: ERR [AUTH] Web login required: https://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?answer=78754 Which leads to https://support.google.com/mail/answer/78754 Which says Make sure your mail client isn't set to check for new mail too often. If your mail client checks for new messages more than ...

If I'm a single user, with a single domain, then does that mean I can only email 130 people a day using SMTP? That limit seems low. No, that means you can email as many users, but it should be limited to 130 different domains. This isn't a problem if you want to send mostly emails to popular domains such as @gmail @outlook @yahoo and similar. If you, ...

GMail has no IP or region restrictions. What you could do though is enable 2-step verification to add further protection? This requires two steps in setting up, one at the domain level: Go to your Google Apps administrator control panel. Click the Advanced tools tab. Under Authentication > 2-step verification, check Allow users to turn on 2-factor ...

As long as you preserve the MX records and the CNAMEs to ghs.google.com they had you set up for the custom subdomains for mail/docs/calendar etc., you can point the www and no-www subdomains wherever you like.

You need to setup a CNAME record pointing to ghs.google.com and enable the url in your apps control panel. This works for all services e.g. mail. sites. docs. etc

There are three ways to acheive this with Google Apps (standard or enterprise): Create a 'nickname' (otherwise known as a email alias). This will allow any email sent to info@example.com to appear in the inbox of me@example.com. Create a group (otherwise known as a distribution list). This will allow email sent to info@example.com to appear in the inboxes ...

Try the header in a different order: List-Unsubscribe: URL, mailto It is a bug that has been reported. I don't know if it has been fixed yet

What do you mean by 'sending an email through my application'. If you have a server other than a google server touching it and forwarding it, and it says the originator is supposed to be somebody@gmail.com, then that alone could trigger Google to mark it as 'spam'. Basically, any server that touches an email will add headers to the message so that it is ...

You have at least two options to get around this: Add the sender address, which you added to the Joomla! configuration, to the whitelist of your Gmail account. Alternatively... Re-configure Joomla! to use an SMTP account to send the mails instead of using the internal mail function.

There are reports of login limits and accounts becoming temporarily frozen, sometimes requiring a Captcha login. If that occurs, then you'll be delayed in receiving orders... This seems like a very inefficient business solution - emails from different servers can get blocked, rejected, etc... Have you thought about using Python (or PHP) for a server-side ...

One disadvantage is that sending email from Gmail would not appear to come from your domain name. It would come from the Gmail address. There is a partial workaround. You could set the "reply to" email address in the Gmail account. But the instructions say that it will only change where replies go, not where the mail appears to come from: ...

You can try Google Apps But now is not "free", and you have to pay if you want to use "email services" from Google GMail. it says in Google Apps Pricing you have to pay $5/user/month or $10/user/month if you want to pay "more". You can try it for free for 30 days if you want.

For me drawbacks of this approach is becoming more and more dependable on Google overall. We are already Google products ourselves. Google sell our data to data brokers, pass to NSA, use it to push pestilent ads, etc. We give away our privacy a little each day. And in this case it is not about your personal box for spam but a business email account.

I sent an email from the standard web interface and then worked out it was the form. Looking in the code there were 2 lines causing errors $headers .= "To: $nameto " . $newLine; $headers .= "From: $namefrom " . $newLine; As these were being added to the header they were being duplicated and gmail did not like it.

You're most likely not authorized to send e-mail from that system for the domain you're trying to use in the 'From' address per SPF. The webserver should use the domain's authorized mail server as a smart relay. A lot of systems don't give useful error messages when they think you're a spammer, as it just tells the spammer what they need to fix to get ...

Yes in Gmail you can click on your setting gears icon click the Accounts and Import tab, and you will see an option called under the Send mail as: section called Add another email address you own here you can add your own email address to use sending from gmail but as your@domain.com zoho.com has free mail hosting for up to 3 accounts

Actually Google Apps already lets you do this for free. The 10 email limit is a limit for the number of users. If you are only one user you can sign up using the free Apps account from here: http://www.google.com/enterprise/apps/business/pricing.html Go into your Google Apps dashboard > Domain Settings > Domain Names. From there you can add as many domain ...

If Google Apps is too expensive for you have you looked into Zoho email? Or RackSpace which is also affordable. If your websites have been compromised twice I would first secure your websites as best as possible then figure out a more efficient way to manage emails.

If you are generating the email in php, remember to add return-path to your headers. Other details like clean code and light message are already in the thread. Of course you are setting the from header, right? Other tips are: set reply-to use \r\n as line ending with no spaces around Have you tried to send the mail to different accounts? like ...

Make sure your SMTP server is not configured as an open relay (test) It's possible that Gmail will flag an email as SPAM if it matches an email previously flagged as SPAM. So it's possible that if you're sending to the same Gmail account, your changes haven't made a difference if the original email from that sender was already flagged as SPAM (since it's ...

Google have been down-playing the free versions of some of their services a bit recently. You don't actually link to what you're looking at, but I've found that depending upon how exactly you reach the Apps information pages, it might be harder to find the free 10-user option. It's listed here.

Apple worked closely with Google and other email providers to enable easy 'it just works' integration and setup on the iPhone. So, while GMail the iPhone uses IMAP it doesn't require the third party IMAP security setting to be enabled to function. Blackberry haven't been involved with Google/GMail, so far as I can tell, but use the same protocol so setting ...
