I installed VestaCP on one of my droplets, and registered a test domain on Freenom to see if DNS and mail worked. Well, they do, but Gmail sends them straight to spam, and other email providers don’t… The IP is all good and not on any blacklists, and I have DKIM, DMARC, and SPF all set up. I set Exim to listen on the hostname smtp.mydomain.com with an LE cert, Dovecot imap.mydomain.com, also an LE cert, and my droplet hostname as hosting.mydomain.com with a PTR record for the same. Is there anything I’m missing?
