I am having on and off problems with notification emails being caught as spam (via gmail). Also direct from Quickbase (maintenance etc.). Any tips to fix?

This is happening with employees/users, as well as customers/not users. While I can ask users to add notify@quickbase.com to their contact list, it is not possible with others. And it makes me worried if gmail is trapping notifications, other email services are doing this too.

If you are communicating with outside customers via automated email notifications, you will need to send out a Dear Customer letter / email explaining the benefits of the communication you are sending out to them, and you recommend that they add notify@quickbase .com to their contacts to ensure the emails arrive properly.

ie gmail is gunna work how it works.  So just spin it the best you can in a positive email to your customers so they will make that setting in their contacts.

You can also blast out a "vcard" to your customers to make it easier for them to add notify to their contacts.

Are you masking the from address in your QuickBase e-mail notifications as another user? If so, you may need an SPF record on the domain you are masking it as. So if you are changing the from to support@acme.com, you might want to consider making that connection behind the scenes to improve with spam scoring.
