If I deviate from normal layout of e-mail, is the risk higher that a number of e-mails never get delivered because they are treated as suspicious?
A while ago, I encountered this happening for the first time that an e-mail I had sent was never delivered. I have never had this problem with Gmail before, only with my company e-mail.
When this happened for me in Gmail, I didn't use the initial greeting phrase and no concluding phrase, just wrote a message straight off. Could this have anything to do with that my e-mail never was delivered? However, there are many occasions I have never used an initial greeting (although almost always a concluding phrase), and my e-mails have still been delivered.
Sometimes there is an exchange back and forth in the same e-mail thread in my Gmail, so I don't feel any need for using initial and concluding phrases on those occasions. But if there is a risk that e-mails never get delivered I might need to use those phrases after all.
