I have two websites hosted on the same server. I set up the second site after I had already set up the first site and its corresponding email server. This is more of a DNS question. The first server has been working trouble free for a long time, and its SPF record checks out just fine and I send mail with no issues. I set up a second web server using an apache vhost, and I used iRedAdmin to set up a second email domain. The problem appears to lie with my SPF record, and whenever I send mail form the second domain, it gets flagged as spam. I've set it up using the original mail server as its MX, but I've never done two e-mail server on the same IP address and I'm not sure if I'm mucking it up.
Here are the two SPF records for reference (hostnames obfuscated):
This works fine:
v=spf1 a mx a:server1.com mx:mail.server1.com ip4:x.x.x.x ~all
This does not work:
v=spf1 a mx a:server2.com mx:mail.server1.com ip4:x.x.x.x ~all
And ideas? Server 2 insofar as mail is concerned is simply a front for server1. You can send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, but it gets routed through the iredmail server at server1.com.
Any insight would be appreciated as I need my messages to stop being flagged as spam.
Received-SPF: neutral (google.com: x.x.x.x is neither permitted nor denied by best guess record for domain of email@example.com) client-ip=x.x.x.x;
Ok. I don't care if you guys know my ip addresses, I just need to know why gmail sends this to the spam folder. According to the headers in the message, it passes the SPF tests and etc.
