You need to make sure that your mail server (most likely the same machine as your php code is running from) is correctly configured to send mail legitimately. You need ensure of a few things are correct to avoid any mail being relayed from that machine being marked as spam off the bat.
Firstly, your mail server MUST say
HELO with it's canonical host name, that is the same value as the
hostname command returns when run on the command line. Under
postfix this is the value of the
myhostname variable in
Secondly, the forward and reverse pointers for your server in DNS must match, and must match the hostname value above. For example
[dave@odessa ~]$ host odessa.cheney.net
odessa.cheney.net has address 220.127.116.11
[dave@odessa ~]$ host 18.104.22.168
249.168.85.64.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer odessa.cheney.net.
Thirdly, check that your mail server is not acting as a open relay. If your mail server is configured to relay mail from other hosts, you should be very careful to ensure that those hosts themselves are not open relays, or are properly protected from accepting messages from unauthenticated hosts There are plenty of sites out there that will make a check for you, http://www.checkor.com/ for example.
Fourthly, look at the content of your message. From the sample you posted above it looks like you are send a small piece of HTML, which will most likely set of alarms with spam filters (take a look at the composition of your average piece of spam). You should always use an email library to compose your mail, and if you send HTML mail, you should include a
Lastly, with the large sites, some of our mail will marked as spam, it's just the law of averages. It's your responsibility to make sure you comply with the appropriate regulations for send automated or bulk email, like CAN-SPAM. The most important part of this is a straight forward way for people to unsubscribe from your mailing lists. If you make this hard for people then you're users are more likely to hit the large spam button in their mail client which will be fed back to the mail host and will work against your server.
