    Mail Sent To Junk Mail

    Hi guys,

    I'm having trouble with (surprise surprise) Hotmail/Live Mail, because certain e-mails sent from my site are being sent to the junk folder. Yes, my SPF record is set up correctly, and there is an MX record for the domain.

    Right so I have an e-mail being sent from systems[at]arcadexl.com. Now, just to test, I decided to change ONLY the e-mail address in the From: header from systems[at]arcadexl.com to pms[at]arcadexl.com, and try again, and it works - it is put in inbox rather than junk. So, I figure that systems[at]arcadexl.com is blacklisted or something... but then I try a completely new address that I've never sent mail from, verify[at]arcadexl.com and once again the e-mails are sent to junk mail.

    There is literally no difference on my server's side between these e-mail addresses: none have receiving accounts, just an MX record for the domain. Both systems[at]arcadexl.com and pms[at]arcadexl.com are used to send mail already, but verify[at]arcadexl.com is not.

    Does anyone know why live mail/hotmail could be treating these e-mails differently? ...or what I can do to stop the mail from getting junked?

    Hi,

    Just an idea here...

    Have you tried using the additional parameter -f?

    mail()

    It sets the mail envelope so that an x-warning isn't attached instead, which may be why it's sending it to junk.

    PHP Code:
    mail($to$subject$message$headers"-f$from"); 
    Hope that helps.
    No, I REALLY dislike having to use Joomla.
