    Hi guys.

    I am helping with sending an email newsletter for a price comparison site. It's good content, with no spam stuff. Just tells people how they can resolve their moisture problems at home.

    Well, it turns out Gmail is giving a warning message any time someone clicks the link in my email saying that this link is suspicious. I am sure many of you have seen that issue. Here's the screenshot:

    I tried to resolve it various ways. First, by replacing http with https. Then, by masking the link with my other domain. Then, by masking it with a url shortener, like bit.ly. But nothing seems to work.

    Have you experienced such issue in past? How did you resolve it?

    I have seen this before for non-standard TLD's for domains, that is domains like example.software example.email example.whatever
    So that might be the case.

    @twisted1919, I am using .com domains for both emailing and tracking.

    Any other reason that could be happening?
