Emails are not appearing in my Gmail Sent folder

Google sets strict limits for sending bulk email via Gmail. When you send an email using Flashissue we route the email campaign via our servers in the background which ensures that you get good deliverability. Since the mailing is performed by our servers you will NOT see the emails appear in your Gmail Sent folder.

There is an exception to this. If your email campaign goes to 15 recipients or less we DO route the sending via Gmail directly and you will see the emails in your Gmail Sent folder. Sending low volumes of emails like this will not be flagged by Gmail as bulk mail so there are no issues.

    Me too. I have several gmail addresses, and I sent it from one to the other. It has been 10 minutes and it still isn't in my inbox. I only sent it to one address, so it shouldn't be tied up in the server this long. I am searching for an answer but don't see one here.

    The same thing is happening to me. I cannot send a test email to myself. It will not show up in my inbox. Maybe it has something to do with all the pictures in the email I am sending that have URL's linked to them. Please help.

    Robert Love I just wanted to let you know that my test emails showed up eventually. Like 6 or 7 days later. 

    I am not using this program, because if I want to send out a fancy email, I want it to arrive within minutes,  not days.

    Lisa,

    Who are you using? What about routing the emails through sendgrid?
