In order to not be marked as spam, you need to:
Make sure your reverse DNS is setup. ie, " resolves to, reverse resolves to (Or )
Setup a MX record that points to
Setup SPF records that allow only your MX record host to send mail
Setup DKIM.
Don't send spam.

(There should be tutorials on how to do each of things around, look at google, since you havn't told us what MTA you're using)

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.
