I want to create a User auto reply that is sent directly to the registrant to confirm their registration. However the email ends up in the spambox.
In the “User auto reply” settings I have set the “From email” as my own email adress, however when the email is sent out the sender is shown as “firstname.lastname@example.org; on behalf of; Cecilia / xxx <email@example.com>; (firstname.lastname@example.org via a.atomicsites.net) (Here I have replaced the exact email with “xxx”).
Can this long “From email” be the reason why the email ends up in the spam folder? And how can I edit this so only my email is shown as the sender?
As you mentioned you are using the domain-related email, there can be various other factors that are weak or spammy email subject or body, mail rank, etc.
In order to avoid email ending up in spam, you can contact your server provider to check server rank or you can also use/buy trusted 3rd party email service provider.
You can also try 3rd party SMTP plugin if that works for you.
In regards to updating sender’s email address, please follow the steps below.
1. Go to Form Dashboard
2. Click on User Auto Reply under Notifications section
3. In “From Email” field, fill in the senders email address (Check if this resolves your previous issue too)
4. Save when done.
