How to avoid being marked as spam

The Qualtrics support page Avoid Being Marked as Spam has some good advice, including using a custom 'From Address' when sending emails via Qualtrics. By default, emails sent through Qualtrics come from the noreply@qemailserver.com email address. However, as email providers are becoming more aggressive in preventing spam email, you can change the address in a number of ways:

  1. Use any of THREE Qualtrics 'From' addresses (NB you can choose what goes before @ but it is recommended to use 'noreply@....):
    • @qemailserver.com
    • @qualtrics-survey.com
    • @qualtrics-research.com
  2. Use your @wbs.ac.uk email address (or @mail.wbs.ac.uk if you have one) NB this only applies for sending to @wbs.ac.uk email recipients.

WBS STAFF: For anonymous surveys, it is recommended to use WBS Business to provide a link to reduce the volume of email traffic to User's Inbox.
