I'm new here and I'm sure this question has been thrown around a lot but I just couldn't find a solution. I have a networking website I've setup and we need to send notification mails to our members depending on activity related to their profiles(messages, comments etc).
We are hosting the site on Centos5.6 with VirtualMin and are using Postfix as our MTA. We also use google apps for email on the site. Heres the problem, the mails go through for some gmail users but more often than not, they end up in gmail,hotmail and yahoo spam.
We've setup the appropriate SPF codes on the server, DKIM and rDNS works fine.
v=spf1 ip4:xx.xx.xx.xx a mx include:_spf.google.com ~all
Below is a sample email that goes directly into gmail spam. I've replaced the actual values with dummy text (Ip, Domain etc)
