What is your html content ?
Try not to use "&, # " in your html.
Hope it works.

If there is an extra space, some symbols(which are spam) or any spam
the mail goes to the spam folder.
Try with a sentence(all words).

I have sent a big text but still the same i am getting mail in spam

You can’t really do anything about spam filters from the sending side,
except to make your mail look less “spammy”. Companies like MailChimp
and SendGrid spend millions to figure this out and to stay off of
blacklists, and it makes sense for them to invest like that, since they
are sending at scale. If getting your message into the in-box instead of
the spam-box is your goal, you might want to use SendGrid (since there’s
a gem) and make sure that your message comes from a trusted

My own personal solution to this is to use my client’s Exchange server
as the sender, since their clients are likely to have white-listed the
host in the past. Another pro tip is to use plain text mail only, avoid
HTML or attachments. There’s more of an art than a science to this, and
it’s a moving battle with the spam filters, I’m afraid.


& may be you can try giving a meaningful subject to the email.

i tried that also but still the same.

Not sure, because I was facing the same problem, & I removed spaces &
unnecessary symbols, & it worked fine for me.

Try adding :- :domain => “gmail.com” in your mailer setting. &
you may modify your method
In user.rb :-
def email

In usermailer.rb :-

def email(user)
@user = user
mail(:to => user.email, :subject => “Welcome!!”)
