Is there any way I could stop Gmail moving mails sent from my mail server to spam folder? We send users email confirmation links, but they are moved right to spam folder. So users who are less smarter or just miss the spam folder are not getting the confirmation email.

You could try setting up SPF, DKIM and reverse DNS which may help out. Also, make sure your e-mails contain unsubscribe links.
