First thing to do would be to warn the user that they may have to check their "Junk Mail" to find the response. Next make sure you're not sending HTML email since that's a clue. Make sure you've got a valid return address and double-check the spelling of all the text, mis-spelled words seem to be another major marker of spam these days.

- yes i warn the user at registeration
- i have to use html format because i have url in mail body the user must click on it , which i can't do it by txtbody
- about spelling i am using arabic languge so this will be miss spelling fo r all body
- the problem espcially with hotmail
- any links talk about stratgies hotmail follow to determine spam

hi there,

you might check the features and properties you set,

I had the same problem, using JMail,

and the reason was I didn't setup the Recipient properly,

make sure, you send out every email individually with one recipient etc.

then it should be alright,...
