Question

My emails go to spam!

  • Posted December 19, 2013

So I got my VPS on digital ocean a few days back. Installed zpanel on it. Haven’t setup any mx records. Do I need to install mail server also if I installed zpanel already? Plus should I make any changes in the zpanel config file?

Hello, all

You can make sure that your mailing list is fully opted-in and that you’re using SMTP authentication.

Also to test the mail score of your emails you can use a website like:

https://www.mail-tester.com/

and then send a valid test - an exact email with a valid - subject, message body, full signatures and attachments.

I’ve updated the article. :]

<b>“When I run DNS health.

Kamal, tell Etel to put the Eggnog down & updated the article. ;-)

Hey! Thanks! When I run DNS health. It shows me reverse DNS not set up also shows some error with SOA! How do I solve that?

zPanel does install a mail server, otherwise you won’t be able to send mail ;) <br> <br>Make sure your droplet’s hostname is a FQDN which points to the droplet (e.g. yourdomain.com as long as yourdomain.com points to your droplet’s IP address). <br> <br>Check out <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-use-an-spf-record-to-prevent-spoofing-improve-e-mail-reliability”>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-use-an-spf-record-to-prevent-spoofing-improve-e-mail-reliability</a> too.
