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.
Thanks for the help i'll try those.
Im a little lost, i add a new TXT record but what should i put in the fields "Enter Name" and "Enter text"?, is it the domain name in the "Enter Name" and the SPF record in the "Enter text" field? Also in the MX records there is a option to add the gmail MX records should i do that to?
TXT record name = @

RE: MX records, only add Google MX records if you registered your domain with Google Apps.
Google might think that your VPS' security has been compromised. If a script is sending spam from your server, any domain on that server might be considered suspect. Google has been filtering mail from my server to spam recently. I'm looking for solutions to this myself - which is how I found myself here.

Best of luck with it.
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. Stop misinforming people telling them: your spf records or dkim is wrong. It's just IP's are blacklisted.
