Well, I am becoming crazy to let my email deliver to gmail/hotmail from my new ip. Last year, i had no problems with my past ip, but now my emails go straight to the spam folder of gmail and hotmail.

I checked with and i am not blacklisted, not an open proxy, rdns is configured the right way, SPF policy is present on the DNS. My spf is v=spf1 a mx ~all

But, still, I am filtered.

So, I am wondering: since gmail does not accept my emails, it's possible to use gmail smtp server to deliver all mails from my server? AFAIK, it will change all the "from" address, but maybe there is a way to not let it happen?

Do you have Reverse DNS setup for the outgoing mail server IP. I had an issue with bounce backs sending mail when we didn't have Reverse DNS configured as I believe it is often an indication of spam. – MrEdmundo May 26 '10 at 8:59
yes, the rDNS for the outgoing mail server IP it's the same specified in the SMTP helo – Magnetic_dud May 26 '10 at 15:56

Try this Email Server Test. If nothing comes out (or) you are unable to implement the suggestions, look at a SMTP Relay Service
