Avoid Spam in Contact form 7 WordPress

One of the issues is if you put the sender address, so I suggest you use the field reply-to as explained here:

Another thing you can do is filter the content with Akismet, the awesome Automattic anti-spam service, as explained in this other post:

I receive the forms sent in gmail, and I read that by adding the “from” address to the gmail contact list you avoid it going to spam, as said here , but my experience is that it does not. https://support.google.com/mail/answer/9008?hl=en. But there is another solution that works, which is, to use a filter and put the checkbox in “do never send to spam folder” (or equivalent text)
