We have several Zaps set up to send reminder emails to our clients about their upcoming events. These have all been working well since March and just this week 2 of the emails included an alert from Gmail “This message seems dangerous”.
I marked “Looks safe” on the 1st alert I got on Monday and then I got a 2nd one today.
The emails are sent from my coworker’s work Gmail address and include 1-4 clients + bcc to me.
Hoping for help on how we can prevent this alert on future emails. Thank you!
