My name is Jade, I am with the Social Care Team at Shopify.
I've been reading through some past instances of other businesses having the same issue. The common piece of feedback that has been working is to use a business email address instead of a personal one. For example, email@example.com would be better than firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you purchased your domain name from Shopify, you can set up an email forwarding address using these steps. Email forwarding is different than email hosting. Email forwarding is when you create an email address such as email@example.com that doesn't have its own inbox. When a customer writes to you at firstname.lastname@example.org, their message is forwarded to your personal email address. When you reply to the customer they'll see your personal email address in the reply.
Email hosting is when you create an email address like email@example.com except the email address has its own inbox as well as the ability to send and receive messages. It's generally not connected to your personal email address so your customers will only see your business email address. Shopify currently doesn't provide email hosting but you can sign up for a third-party service such as GSuite or Zoho Mail to set that up.
Let us know if this works for you!

Hi there, i also have this problem. I have my own domain name and my emails are hosted with Microsoft Exchange Online (Office 365). I have spoken to 5 other vendors with the same problem who also have their own domain and emails with Microsoft. This must be a Shopify problem. It could be the wording of the default abandoned cart text being marked as spam because technically it is spam!
Do Shopify have a solution for this.
I am going to try change the wording to see if that helps but i think Shopify need to fix this as a priority because it is happening to so many people and it is affecting our income!
Hi There. This is an interesting topic and I also wondered myself and made research a lot for this.
And I would like to give you a guide about the abandoned cart emails and I hope this can help you in some ways.
Regarding the abandoned cart emails, they not only depend on what you performed: headings, call to action button, format, etc but also depend on the legalization.
And in this guide, you can know more details.
Let me know if you have any opinions. Thank you!
