I've run into this in the past. Here are a few things you can try to reduce the chance of your email being considered spam:

1. Send through a big name mail server (like gmail or Microsoft). If you're using your own mail server, check some of your MX data using That will help identify issues that may cause some of your mail to get flagged.

2. Send to just a few recipients at a time. If you send to a lot of different people, it can raise a flag.

3. Make your subject line Non-descript. A subject line of "Today's Specials" is less likely to get flagged than a subject of "*** SPECIALS *** TODAY ONLY!!!" I once cut outgoing spam issues in half by using Upper Lower Case letters in the subject instead of all Upper Case.

4. (This one's big) If you're email is in HTML format, try attaching a PDF file instead (just to see if it helps). Most Bulk emails come in HTML format.

5. If you're going to have 'unsubscribe' information, put it in a link in the PDF vs. in the main body of the message.

Basically, try to make your email look like something someone typed, instead of something that's computer generated.

Try some of these ideas where you can, and see if it makes a difference. I hope this helps.
