    On a bunch of crush ads and cutting edge offers (hitpath) templates I am getting a phising warning:

    "Warning: This message may not be from whom it claims to be. Beware of following any links in it or of providing the sender with any personal information. Learn more" to only the gmail seeds.

    Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Google's filtration in full effect, buddy.

    Try manipulating your template to get rid of "spammy" words or elements. Read up on some of the best practices for email threads that have been posted lately, they might contain things that will help you out.

    Maybe the way your system is setup to deliver is tipping something off as well. What are you using?

    Does it happen with all of the offers or just some? Also, Crush is on cake so pretty sure the platform has nothing to do with it.

    I've noticed these warnings usually appear when your "from" email address contains a brand name or phishing-prone words. Ex:

    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    Etc.

    Changing your from to something more generic should get rid of that.

    :)

    VelocitySoftware is correct but to elaborate a bit:

    this usually happens when your clickthru tracking link the a href= is diff from the link text which makes google think it looks like phishing

    for example

    clickthru tracking is:

    a href = http://foo.com

    and link text is

    click here = > http://somesite.com

    Most ESPs will mask the links to match the clickthru tracking. If it is not masked, looks like phishing.

    HTH,
