Gmail rejected my email

If an email you sent got rejected or bounced back, Gmail flagged the email as spam.

Why emails get rejected

If Gmail thinks that an email you sent from Gmail is spam, the email may sometimes be rejected and returned to you.

Here are a few reasons your email might have been rejected as spam:

  • Adding a large number of recipients as "cc" or "bcc"
  • Adding links to spammy content

Tip: If you're sending an email to a big group, try creating a Google Group with the recipients’ email addresses, then sending the email to that group.
