Just recently I have started having problems receiving emails from my two self-hosted WordPress sites. This is both emails from an on-page email form and email notification of new comments, both of which have worked fine until recently.
I think the comment notification has stopped working altogether. But the email form still is working, but many of the emails are ending up in my Gmail Spam folder because “Gmail could not verify that it actually came from firstname.lastname@example.org”.
Now the email doesn’t actually come from that address, which is the email provided by the commenter, but from my website on the server of my hosting company. The email quite clearly says that it comes from https://sitename, and only lists the xxxx@yyyy email address as the email of the person sending.
This is really an issue I should take up with Gmail (I guess), but I don’t have much hope of getting a reply, so I thought I’d ask here first.
1. Are other people having problems just recently with either type of email?
2. Have you experienced Gmail labelling emails as spam for this reason, and have you a simple workaround please?
