Email going to spam only for addon domain(virtual server)

  • Posted October 16, 2013

Hi, I have setup a droplet with virtualmin (centos 6, AMP). My main domain = emails are not going to spam, but my other domain( virutal server/addon domain) emails are being delivered in SPAM.

My MX records are setup as for domain1, for domain2, for domain3

Text records are same for all.

Thanks in advance for all your help

Try deleting the zone itself and not each record individually. If your domain name’s nameservers are set to DigitalOcean’s nameservers, create an SPF record and add it as a TXT record in the DNS manager.

I have tried deleting all the records in virtualmin but one <br> Record name Type Value
<br> SOA - Start Of Domain 1381990859 10800 3600 60480 … <br> <br>is disabled, so I am not able to delete this part. <br>How to proceed? <br> <br>Thanks for your further help

I don’t understand what you mean by <b>"I have configured only DO DNS …</b>. <br> <br>Does that mean that you created DNS records in DigitalOcean’s <a href=“”>DNS Manager</a>? If so, then you need to delete the DNS records in Virtualmin.

Sorry for reply late <br>@Pablo, I think you have not gone through my above post thoroughly. <br>I have configured only DO DNS and there is no error in that. <br>because my emails are sent to spam …I just looked at Virtualmin DNS and there were error – what I have provided in image – thought that it could help you and others to solve my problem (mails going to spam)

I’m confused. The image you provided appears to be a screenshot of Virtualmin with a bunch of DNS records. Yet, in a previous post, you stated “I just configured the DO DNS.” <br> <br>So which one is it? You have to pick one or the other (DO or Virtualmin) to manage your DNS records. Let me know which one you want, so we can take this one step at a time. <br> <br>This error is in Virtualmin DNS Records. <br>The SOA - Start Of Domain 1381990855 10800 3600 604800 38400… this is my another droplet…( the current droplet is an image of my previous droplet)

As @Kamal suggested, <br> <br>“Please post a screenshot of the DNS records of a domain with an error.”

I did not do any thing in virtualmin. I just configured the DO DNS. I was going through the DNS records of virtualmin to find the cause of email going to spam. Then only I found about this error. <br>Now what do you suggest me to do @Pablo ? <br>I have provided everyting about my dns, spf and other things but the emails are still going to spam. <br>As you suggested easySPF: an Ajax enabled SPF Wizard. - I am little confused about it how to create… <br> <br>Can you help in this regard? <br> <br>Thanks for all your help

You should be managing your DNS records in only one place: either (i) DigitalOcean’s DNS Manager or (ii) your Virtualmin server(s). Do you have DNS records in both?

@kamal. All domains are getting the same warning message. DO DNS details does not show any error neither into dns shows any error. only virtualmin is showing error in the DNS record section. <br>Which screenshot should I post - the DO DNS or the virtualmin DNS record section. <br> <br>Thanks for your help
