I'm testing sending emails from mailenable webmail. I have no problems sending mail to gmail or hotmail, both work fine, but yahoo mail sends my messages to the spam folder and shows the attachment icon for the message even though the message doesn't contain any attachments, it's just plain text. It only includes a reply to a previous message, like this:

message text

----- Original Message -----

original message text

I copied the message content and sent it from gmail to yahoo and the attachment icon didn't show which makes me believe it's something with mailenable. What could possibly be wrong?

Also, is there a white list for yahoo mail that I can join? And also for other popular webmail? I'm going to use this on a production website (site visitors use the contact us form to send messages to the site - the mail enable server running on the same machine as the web server - then I check the messages using the mailenable webmail and reply them).

This is really important to me, your help would be really appreciated ...

No! it's something that I have to configure in mailenable, what does superuser has to do with this?! – Mee Oct 24 '09 at 3:28

There are definitely some things you should look into when sending email to Hotmail/Yahoo.

First, the MSN Postmaster:

Sender Solutions

Then, the Yahoo! end:

Yahoo Postmaster

If your mail is not being delivered successfully to the major free email providers, read the above links very thoroughly.

Hope that helps.
