Make sure you are sending from an email address that is from the domain
rails app is on.
Services like hotmail use SPF (Sender Policy Framework) DNS Records
And if the email isn’t from that domain it gets rejected
make sure the subject and body contain real info on the site and purpose
ie something like
Foo.bar welcomes you to their newsletter!!
This will help it to not go into junk folders
