Emails are flagged as spam by gmail, with SPF passed

October 14, 2013 8.8k views
I am still having this problem! even though the message shows everything right! is there anyway to create the PTR records on the DNS manager tool? do I have to have my own DNS? if so... is there an alternative to use(mailgun.com?) if so, how do I configure that? SPF: "v=spf1 a mx a:camoatech.com ip4:162.243.41.157 ?all" Google says signature is ok, dkim is passed and SPF is passed... what else do I need? any special way to create MX records?

  • Perhaps you should take a look at the email content & headers ?
    Eventually run the email through SpamAssassin to get some hints on what could be wrong

  • plz guys if u have a header inbox its always spam right here :(

In your SPF record, change ?all to ~all

Message-ID:


and still going to spam!
Have you checked to make sure your domain and/or IP address are not blacklisted?
Yes sir, doesn't seem to be listed. I also have a nother domain, everything is ok as well but it also goes to spam!
Looks like there's some redundancy in that you declare a and a:camoatech.com and ip4:162.243.41.157. Perhaps repeating essentially the same value 3 times is confusing the SPF filters you're encountering.

Try shortening up your SPF record from "v=spf1 a mx a:camoatech.com ip4:162.243.41.157 ?all" to "v=spf1 mx a ~all".
I'll try that. but SPF shows passed!
That did not work, I suspect it may be reverse DNS?
"... I suspect it may be reverse DNS?"

Could be. Login to your DigitalOcean Control Panel and make sure your PTR record is correct. If not, simply recreate the droplet's hostname via the D.O. C.P. and the PTR record will be updated automatically.
50% of digital ocean's AMS datacenter's IP's are blacklisted. That's why your email are going in to a spam folder in gmail.
  • Hi, quick questions, how do you verified about blacklisted Digital Ocean's IP?... Using mailgun service could avoid going to spam folder in gmail?

    Thanks
