Use of "noreply@" email for notifications?

I'm curious what thoughts are in regards to using "noreply@..." emails for the notifications.  All my notifications coming from getanahita are treated as spam, and after researching a bit it seems the "noreply" from address is often, if not typically, treated as such by gmail, outlook, etc.

I am currently running a separate email account for my project, the address of which I have set the Site Settings to utilize.  I can though see the point of the email address itself conveying that what is being sent is informational only - e.g., no reply is to be expected - however I'm not crazy about the notifications defaulting to being treated as spam.

Thoughts?  Suggestions?

I just changed the email to notification@getanahita.com to see if it would make a difference. I am also thinking of ways to reduce the number of email notifications. I don't think they serve much purpose unless important information is sent out such as password reset links. An alternative would be browser push notifications. Companies like https://onesignal.com are offering free unlimited packages for PNs.

For me the notifications are more of a trigger to log in to see what's new, in which I see value. The fine-line becomes what is default... too many and you ignore them (e.g., Facebook and others for which you first sign up). Similar to privacy settings, what's the 80/20 value proposition for the target user base.

I might be old-school in this regard, but I'm working to limit the quantity of tech interfaces I need to stay on top of... email is a given, so when I see something worthwhile there I'm more likely to log in to the related point of interest rather than checking that point of interest regularly.
