Question: Bounced Email

When I send an email to my daughter from my computer, it bounces saying it's spam. All other emails go through. If I send an email to my daughter with my iPad using the same router as my computer, it goes through. How can I get the emails from my computer to work?

iMac, OS X Yosemite (10.10.5)

Hey, Ronald.

I see that you're experiencing an issue trying to send an email to your daughter. It's marked as "spam" when it's sent and it's not delivered to her. It works fine from your iPad, however, and I'm happy to help.

Verify an account’s outgoing mail server -- Make sure the server settings for your email address are correct. Mail settings you might need from your email provider -- Utilize this link to obtain your provider's settings.

If you can’t send messages -- If the issue persists, the information in this article can help.

Let me know how that goes.

Take care!

Thanks for your help. I contacted my internet provider to see if they could provide any help. The first thing he suggested was to send my daughter an email and this time it went through. It's the first one that went through this year so now I'm really confused. At least for now, it is working.
