    How Do I Prevent Mails Sent Using PHP from Going into the Bulk/Spam mail Folder

    Hi guys,

    I developed a small email client where i can send HTML emails with lots of colors and graphics.

    The problem is everytime i send this mail, it always goes into the Bulk folder of Yahoo! emails and the Spam folder when sent to Gmail address.

    Please, how do i prevent it from going into these folders. I want it to hit the Inbox straight up....one time!

    Thanks

    Its going to depend a lot on the content of your email. Obviously these servers are seeing your email as SPAM, so the big question is... is it SPAM? Are the email addresses your sending to ones you've collected or bought? Or are they actually people who've subscribed to your service?
    Reduce or eliminate spam on your sites without CAPTHCAs

    Ensure that in the headers you are specifying a "Reply-To:" address....I read that this may stop it in Hotmail from going to the junk folder.
