Email reply-to address effect on delivery?
Hoping @MichaelCee has the tried and tested answer - and hoping his answer will help other members as well.
What's it about?
Consider these 4 domains:
Say I configure all the domains' SPF DMARC and DKIM properly (gmail.com is already configured by Google). OK?
And say I use news.example com for sending emails.
From email is like: [email protected]news.example.com
If I don't configure/change the reply-to email, it's all good.
But, what about these scenarios:
What happens if I configre a reply-to email to be:
[email protected]example.com (so, I'm using the "root" domain for the reply-to address)?
Does this increase the chances of my email getting to the spam-box?
The same question for using [email protected]pigeons.com (properly configured, but completely different domain).
Finally, if I set the reply-to to be [email protected]gmail.com - for that I'm sure it would trigger some spam filters (correct me if I'm wrong).
If 1) is OK, it could save me some time configuring stuff.
If 2) is good as well, it could save me hours, if not more.
3) is most probably a bad idea - but I'd appreciate a confirmation.
