Email sent to hotmail.com get's put in Junk Email folder
Posted on 2007-08-10
I have a server at a hosted site where I send emails to users who register on our website. Any replies get sent to a different server. This works but any emails that go to hotmail accounts get marked as junk.
Mail gets sent from smtpout.abc.com (IP 22.214.171.124)
I have my PTR set to resolve 126.96.36.199 to smtpout.abc.com
My SPF is set "v=spf1 a mx ip:188.8.131.52 ~all"
My MX is set for mail.xyz.com (IP 184.108.40.206)
I can successfully sent and recive mail for the abc.com domain but Hotmail doesn't like it. I don't think it's an issue that my MX points to a different domian is it? Any ideas?
Here's a copy of the header that hotmail sent to Junk:
