  • There's a checklist for ensuring you don't end up as spam:

    • Check MX Blacklists, see if your box is present on them
    • Make sure your PTR is valid
    • Make sure your mailserver isn't identifying itself as 'localhost'
    • Make sure that your SPF record is set and is allowing your box to send mail
    • Make sure that you are not actually spamming
