Did you create SPF records?
I set up Mandrill and it works absolutely fine with gmail spam filter. That's not a direct answer to your problem but an another way to achieve the goal.
Yes, it's TXT @ "v=spf1 ip4: -all"

TXT @ "v=spf1 mx a ~all"
Hi Tobia,

Did you manage to fix this? I am having a very similar problem.

A carefully tailored SPF record will reduce the likelihood of your domain name getting fraudulently spoofed and keep your messages from getting flagged as spam before they reach your recipients.
I am still having the same problem! SPF: "v=spf1 a mx ip4: ?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?
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.
