My forum emails go to spam folder
Anybody else with this problem?Whenever someone registers or gets quoted emails go to spam folder.
Is there a way to fix this?
All email is handled by Wordpress and not wpForo.
Probably your EMAIL smtp server is blacklisted? Or flagged as a high risk one?
@joselito this is a common problem, most likely your WordPress is not properly configured to work with the PHP mail() function, so mail is not being sent with all the mail protocol authentication requirements, so mail coming from your site is being flagged as spam by e-mail providers. In most cases, it's better to use SMTP if your WordPress and hosting is properly configured to work with it.
You will need your domain DKIM,SPF and PTR to be setup rock solid in your domain DNS settings and if possible, a DMARC record too. Even then it can take time to build your email server's reputation.
@RealAct suggestions above are solid. Those third party email senders can be helpful if you cannot easily manage own server system, either by yourself or via your hoster.
