Emails are not sending

If you have scheduled your campaign or sent your emails with Autopilot, you can track the progress of your campaign under your Mailmeteor Dashboard.

My attachments files are not sent

If your attachment is not sending with your emails, it might be due to the file size being too large or a temporary connection issue.

  1. Please make sure your attachment size is below 5MB. You may need to use an online service to compress your files such as a PDF compressor.

  2. Try to create a new template in Mailmeteor and attach your file again. This might solve a download issue due to a temporary connection loss.

Email alias is not working

If you are using an email alias but emails are not sending correctly, the main reason might be that your email alias is not well configured in Gmail. Indeed, Mailmeteor falls back to your primary email address when your alias is not properly set up.

How to solve an email alias not working properly:

  1. Check that your alias is well configured in Gmail using Google's guide on how to set up an alias

  2. Once you made sure your alias is set up correctly, try to send a test email from your Gmail account with your email alias

  3. If everything works in Gmail, then it will work in Mailmeteor too!

My emails are going to spam

Here are two great guides to help you deal with spam issues:

Take some time to review your emails using these guidelines. Most of the time, a spam issue comes from your own email reputation or email copy.

"You have reached a limit for sending email"

If Gmail prompts this error after you've run a mail merge, it means that you've reached your sending capacity or that your email was detected as spam. Mailmeteor sends emails using your own Gmail account, this means that when your account reaches this limit, you can't send emails for a period of around 24 hours. Read this guide to learn more about how to fix this issue.
