    Hi,
    Has anyone had any luck working out how to inbox to Gmails Primary folder for bulk mail? I am able to inbox to Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo through my mailing system however since Gmail created the 3 folders to place your email i, like most other internet marketers are finding our emails only hitting the Promotions tab

    I believed the reason it was going to the Promotions tab was that Gmail filters saw it was bulk mail by the unsubscribe footer at the bottom so i have played around changing text and removing it but it still hits the Promotions tab. I know some marketers have found a solution to this and i was hoping someone could point me in the right direction

    Thanks in advance

    IMO this doesn't matter much. Although the emails are in the promotion tab, it doesn't matter much as the user still gonna see that he got an email and if he is interested he'll read it..

    Hi atti_dude
    If it appears in the promotions tab the user isnt alerted to the fact he has the mail unless they click on the tab, making it very important to hit the primary tab. The good thing is that it will still deliver to your phone as the phones doesnt filter the emails
