By default, all emails sent from your Woo360® website are sent from the email address mailer.madwire.net. Sometimes, these emails may be detected as "spam" by some email providers. To prevent your emails from being sent to spam, you can set up your own Mailgun account so that all of your emails are sent from an email address that matches your domain name.
How to Set up a Personal Mailgun Account
