When I first created the mail server everything worked fine and mail landed in the inboxes of Gmail accounts.
Now all of the sudden it keeps landing in Spam boxes. I even added SPF records and an Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate. I found myself blacklisted while only 30 mails have been send as test to myself. I was blacklisted by ivmSIP/24. After requesting removal yesterday, this morning I confirmed they removed me from their blacklist.
What is going and how do I trouble shoot beyond the things I have done?
My mail server scores better then my work mail server which doesn’t land in the spambox.
