    Hi everyone, so this is my last resort, I've tried all, and emails keep going to spam on hotmail and gmail. not sure why.
    Here is a report of my email setup, all seems to be green/passed, but emails still go into spam.

    Any ideas ?

    Does that mean you actually don't have a problem, or ?? (where did that spamassassin breakdown come from? I don't think gmail does that, dunno about hotmail)

    Suggestions to try
    • add your sending address to your gmail/hotmail address book
    • drag your messages out of the spam folder and into your inbox on each service
    • ensure your mail server has proper forward/reverse dns names setup
    • create spf records for your domain(s) and ensure you're signing your mail with dkim; maybe even create a dmarc record
    • check if your server is on any blacklists and/or check its reputation (eg. at and get those issues cleaned up if there's a problem (eg. your server may be an open relay or a source of spam from websites or compromised accounts - you'll need to identify and fix such issues)
