Question

Mailx sending all mails to spam folder.

Posted November 17, 2013 6.7k views
Newbie Here, My goal is to setup email accounts with my domain (ex: john@mydomain.com) and use the SMTP Server I configured in my NodeJS App to send mails to my app's subscribers. I followed this tutorial in setting up Postfix and Mailx: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-postfix-on-centos-6 and installed iRedMail following this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-iredmail-on-centos-6-3-x64 All is working fine except that all mails from the email accounts are being sent to the spam folder. I have set up a TXT Record with these values as instructed in the tutorial: Name: @ Text: v=spf1 ip4:MYSERVERIP_ADDRESS -all

Have you wanted a few hours until the SPF record propagates? Try testing your SPF record using http://tools.bevhost.com/spf/.
@Kamal Nasser Hi! What should I put in the Senders Computer Name Field? I apologize for the newbie question.
because it says "Unable to resolve cjflores in the DNS"
@Kamal Nasser This is the response I get:

StartError
Context: Failed to query MAIL-FROM
ErrorCode: (2) Could not find a valid SPF record
Error: No SPF records for 'dealwithin.com'
EndError
none

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.
