Why do my test emails land in the spam folder when I send to myself or team mates?

While sending emails to your corporate domain, if the "From" and "To" email addresses are the same, your emails may land in the spam folder due to the filters and rules implemented by the sender domain.

You can resolve this issue by performing these steps :
  1. Authenticate your sender domain
  2. Add the sender domain to the safe sender list based on the security configurations implemented for your mailbox
  3. Whitelist your sender domain
Sometimes your emails may get classified as spam because of the content or due to the reputation earned by your previous emails. To resolve this, you can offer relevant content and avoid using spam trigger phrases in the content. You can also mark previous emails as "not spam" to prevent your emails from landing in the spam folder.
