    Question SPF (Email marked as spam)

    Hi folks, I have a dedicated server in which i host 4 web sites using plesk one of them is mysite.com. That one is also set for ns1.mysite.com ns2.mysite.com.

    (all domain names below are just example names)

    Dns records for my apple.com orange.com and banana.com uses ns1.mysite.com and ns2.mysite.com my name server is also in the same machine.

    In orange.com dns settings are as follows.

    Code:
    	80.111.11.11 / 24	PTR	orange.com
    	orange.com.	NS	ns1.mysite.com.
    	orange.com.	NS	ns2.mysite.com.
    	orange.com.	A	80.111.11.11
    	orange.com.	MX (10)	mail.mysite.com.
    	orange.com.	TXT	v=spf1 a mx include:gmail.com,yahoo.com,hotmail.com ~all
    	ftp.orange.com.	CNAME	orange.com.
    	mail.orange.com.	A	80.111.11.11
    	webmail.orange.com.	A	80.111.11.11
    	www.orange.com.	CNAME	orange.com.
    80.111.11.11 is dedicated ip for orange.com.

    The PROBLEM:

    The thing is whenever the server sends email it is flagged spam by yahoo, hotmail etc. I have created SPF for my orange.com but it is still marked as spam...

    I have checked dns report for both mysite.com and orange.com but they seem to be OK with no warnings either.

    I want to create a spf record or make somthing so the emails does not marked as spam.

    I would really appreciate all feedback

    The problem is most likely caused by the actual content of your emails.

    Some tips:
    - avoid sending email to a large number of recipients
    - avoid attaching any file in mass mailings
    - avoid using highly formatted text especially with coloured headings
    - do not USE "ALL CAPS" FOR MORE THAN THE OCCASIONAL WORD
    - do not use background graphics or logos
    - avoid using "sales patter" e.g. Hot Deal, Special Offer
    - avoid using rude language
