Spam and Spam

I’m still trying to make it so my emails from lee.org don’t fall into people’s spam folders. When I send email to new people it often goes to spam. I’ve checked headers carefully and it shouldn’t but gmail receivers see a notice “emails from lee.org have been spam in the past”. Ugh.

Dreamhost tech support suggested that I move my mail to Google Workspace. They have a 1 month free trial and it’s just $6/month/user. Maybe if it’s hosted locally, they will show more love for the domain. And there’s a bunch of tools available with the suite. Maybe I can go back to Dreamhost after a few months.

 

The data migration tool would only let me pull in the last year of gmail from my old gmail account. Bah! So I turned on the import feature in gmail and did it that way instead Go to admin.google.com | Apps | Google Workspace | Gmail | Setup | User Email Uploads. Set to “on” Then go into the new gmail account and go to Settings | Accounts and Import. Do the import!

 

Here are the tools I’m using to analyze email:

Google Postmaster Tools

Google Admin Toolbox

MXToolbox Monitoring

Google Admin for Workspace
