Just wanted to give a heads up for this. My thoughts are that it might be because of the .ml domain name, or it might be because the emails are both automated and very simple, which might look like spam to the filter.

a topic kick haha.

I would add that better formatted notification emails could help at least with the readability.

There’s nothing our devs can really do about that, that’s entirely to do with the email sites internal logic, many mainstream sites end up in spam filters too, facebook, twitter, twitch, and a lotta other sites end up in my Mail.com spam folder

Do you know if all these bases are covered? This is gmail but it appears to apply to other spam filters.

  • Publish an SPF record for your domain. SPF prevents spammers from sending unauthorized messages that appear to be from your domain.
  • Turn on DKIM signing for your messages. Receiving servers use DKIM to verify that the domain owner actually sent the message. Important: Gmail requires a DKIM key of 1024 bits or longer.
  • Publish a DMARC record for your domain. DMARC helps senders protect their domain against email spoofing.

Sorry, I’m not a coder. So I don’t really know the ins and outs of lemmy’s code.

Fair enough. Element notifications end up in spam too for some reason. I wonder if there’s a way to report false positives to the mail provider.
