Gmail & B2B Spam


A client recently reminded me of Gmail's yellow bar that explains why a message went to spam. I decided to pull up the last few spams out of my spam folder and check the yellow "why" bar.
  • b2b-leadgen.com: Why is this message in Spam? It's similar to messages that were detected by our spam filters.
  • verizones.com: Why is this message in Spam? We've found that lots of messages from verizones.com are spam.
  • mail-leadiro.com: Why is this message in Spam? We've found that lots of messages from mail-leadiro.com are spam.
  • trainingdoyens.com: Why is this message in Spam? We've found that lots of messages from trainingdoyens.com are spam.
If Gmail says that these three sending domains seem to be spammy, who am I to argue?

(If you recognize your company name there, maybe it's time to reconsider your B2B strategy. I never signed up for your emails. Send a lot of mail to people who didn't sign up for it, and that's what happens.)
