Postfix mails being sent to spam

Posted November 3, 2014 6.1k views

I have postfix running on my server to send emails, but they end up in spam folder. What is the reason for that? Also, I have configured my godaddy account with following dns settings:
A(Host):
@ -> my-ip-address
Do, i need to add more settings for email?

  • For perfect email delivery a TXT record, DKIM record and a reverse DNS record are required.

    The Droplet’s IP must also not be present on any blacklist.

    Use the following website to do an email test, you’ll get more insight on which area is causing the problem.
