Question

Roundcube emails sent to spam

I recently installed zpanel on my vps, everything seems to work just fine except my mail client. I kept sending out test emails to verify that everything was working properly. The first 2-3 emails were received in the inbox just as expected.

As I started to send out more emails to other email providers I noticed that my emails aren’t being sent to the inbox anymore. They are going straight into the spam folders. I tested with Yahoo and Gmail. Both of these providers are receiving my email in spam folders.

I’m using RoundCube to send out the emails, I tried Outlook without any luck. Also, tried to reply to one of my own Craigslist ads using their encrypted emails and RoundCube nor Outlook seem to send the email I get the following error:

This is the mail system at host control.yourdomain.com.

qv9pq-4365271614@gigs.craigslist.org: host mxi4f.craigslist.org[208.82.238.83] refused to talk to me: 554 [EAF21D23-0C43-4ADB-9D11-C1A0B394E968] Sorry we could not find address for server.basicoffer.co.uk. Please setup a forward DNS record: http://www.craigslist.org/about/help/rdns_failure

It’s important to me that I’m able reply to Craigslist ads as I do a lot of business over there. My vps is running Centos 6.5 X64
