Introduction: Some of the popular email providers (Google, Yahoo, etc.) scan for terms like USPS as part of their spam filter. Because of this, some of your confirmation emails may be placed in the spam folder of your customers.
As always, teaching your mail program that these emails are not spam (through filters or the This is not spam button) will help for future messages, but it won't necessarily help your customers get their first message.

1. Go to your Account Settings (the wrench icon in the upper right).
2. Choose Shipment Notification or Delivery Notification, depending on the confirmation email you'd like to edit.
