    Are you using an autoresponder for the email marketing (like aweber or mailchimp)? If so, many autoresponders come with a spam check that can tell you the likelihood of your email being spam. This is usually by the number of links you have, use of the word "free", "offer", etc

    If you are doing this without an autoresponder, make sure you aren't using a "free" account like gmail, etc. But rather from a business email address. Here is a quick checklist

    I would suggest to venture on another way of promoting your business anyway. E-mail marketing doesn't seem to be effective anymore these days. People rarely read promotional e-mails as they consider them junk mails.

    yeah I would advice against email marketing. They end up in the spam/junk folder because that's exactly what they are!

    If you have an opt-in on your site, and provide something with actual value, email lists are extremely valuable. If all you are doing is spamming advertisements for stuff, your emails will end up in spam. If, however, you offer something interesting (like a weekly newsletter or video), the users will come to build trust with you. Once they have enjoyed your content for some time, you can start with sales through email.

    I agree with Yamabushi, email marketing is still valuable and that's why top internet marketers have an opt-in on their sites. I for one still read email marketing messages and find them helpful in some ways. But it's not just collecting email addresses, you have to build a "quality" list not just some random addresses collected from random online places for the sake of having a "list".

    As for @jesseryjhon's concern, if you're gathering email addresses from your online form then perhaps you can add a simple reminder just below the form submission button that says "Kindly check your SPAM/Junk folders in case our email does not appear in your inbox." Then in the emails that you're sending, also add a reminder just below your email signature something like this >> "Kindly add our email address to your contacts so our message won't end up in your SPAM folder, Thanks."

    I am also quite interested to know how does the spam filter at the mail servers determine whether a mail is spam or not. Anyone care to explain the criteria they used to flag a spam mail?

    The criteria are: keywords, mailing software used and perhaps location. They usually look for keywords like 'Viagra', 'HYIP' and whether the email is written in caps. Of course it's much complicated than that and there are probably more criteria which I haven't listed, but you should get the rough idea. The problem is that there isn't any reliable way to beat spam filter, since the spam filters are usually overzealous, and they are programmed to be as such in order to be effective. Even normal mails from known websites can be placed in the junk, so you could imagine that it isn't practical at all to try and beat the filter.

    While words, sentence structure, location, email address etc do play their part, I'd assume that most spam filters compare results from multiple accounts. This way, if 1000 people receive the same email they will throw them all to the spam folder etc. This is my educated guess, not a fact.

    Well, I would have advised using the business email address. But there has been a problem in doing this as faced by one of my client - he used to send out using business email. Unfortunately, some didnt appreciate and reported the emails to SpamCop and they somehow contacted the hosting organization who then blocked the site for a few days.

    Agreed, that not many would do that, but still, there are people out there who might report. This is one reason many dont prefer using their business email IDs to start off with. It has become kinda clumsy out there.
