PHPMail: Email sent but not recieved ?

Hi, I just used PHPMailer to send a email to my gmail account. I received a debug message "Message has been sent", but when I check my inbox it didn't receive the email (even in spam folder).
I tried the same code in localhost and it worked fine.

Can anyone one tell me what is the problem here ?

Thank you

Make sure that you set up SPF and DKIM record. I have been working on this myself for the past days, and finally got it working.

Try to set these records up first and try again, but if this doesn't work, you might have to either create a user with mail directory, or edit the postfix main.cf.

Here's the tutorials I followed.

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.
