Not Solved Contact form emails are marked as spam

Hi guys

I am using MyBB 1.8.6

When users use the contact.php form MyBB will email it to me using the user submitted email (but reply-to will be my board email) - this causes these emails to always be marked as spam (at least in Gmail)

Is there anything we can do about this or swap the 'origin' and 'reply-to' emails?

Gmail will mark emails as spam as the sender header isn't the same as your sent email address.
I would presume the settings that you are using for mail is SMTP?

You can read more about it here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14155...der-header

I'm actually just using PHP mail - my activation mail gets received fine as the sender is my Forum, however for the contact emails the sender becomes the user - which then gets flagged as spam.

will take a look at the links, thx - any other suggestions welcome!

Don't use a yahoo address as the from. Also, make sure to set up an SPF record for your domain to establish trust.
