Why am I not receiving the website inquiries?

Contact forms offer both new and existing customers an easy and convenient way to contact you via your website. In a perfect world, any message sent via your website’s contact form goes straight to your inbox.

However, thanks to the form’s potential for being abused by unscrupulous spammers, many email services often tend to mark legitimate inquires as junk. Unfortunately, this is an all-too-common occurrence nowadays, and whether an email from a new customer ends up in your junk folder or inbox is often anyone’s guess.

Thankfully, whitelisting email addresses from known senders is an easy solution that allows you to receive important emails while still blocking pesky junk emails.
