Like I mentioned in title I have a problem with my mail, Google treated them as spam. On my VPS I have CentOS 5 Kloxo Host-InA-Box.

So I set all 5 mx records for GoogleApps:

conmendo.com    MX  10  ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
conmendo.com    MX  20  ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
conmendo.com    MX  30  ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM
conmendo.com    MX  40  ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM
conmendo.com    MX  5   ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM


google._domainkey   TXT     -   v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=MIGfMA0GCSqG...
(key provided by GoogleApps)


@   TXT     -   v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all

(as it say here: http://support.google.com/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=178723)

On my VPS i have installed Wordpress and plugin "WP-Mail-SMTP" so i can send my mails using SMTP option. Now when i try to test my mails like new user registration or just by plugin option "test email" all my mails are going to spam folder. Tested with gmail and hotmail.

This is example of test mail that always fail and goes in spam folder:

Right now is more then 5-6 days i try to solve this problem but nothing. I check huge amount of tips how to sort this problem but all they point to same thing, create TXT record for SPF with next value "v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all". Do i miss something because at this point i dont know what else i can do. If anyone can help me i would be really grateful.

I'd fix this, for starters:

Authentication-Results: mx.google.com; spf=neutral (google.com: is neither permitted nor denied by best guess record for domain of info@conmendo.com)

According to dig, you don't have an SPF record for conmendo.com.
