DKIM pass, SPF pass, DMARC pass but the email goes into Gmail spam

I’m setting up my email server. I setted DKIM, SPF and DMARC but the email goes every time in the gmail spam folder. Everything seems correct, the score for spam is 0.11 and in the original message DKIM, SPF and DMARC pass. These are the headers

Hello there,

What you can try is to split the record into two parts using quotes and then run another test via or mxtoolbox. In this way, you can check if the record is valid and if it’s a case of DNS cache and the record not taking immediate effect.
