Hi,

My out-of-the-box server's email are being directed to Hotmail/Yahoo/Gmail SPAM folder. I have installed/configured SPF, I have a reserve DNS set.

Here's the original header of my sent e-mails.

Using http://www.mxtoolbox.com, your mailserver comes back as an open relay. This could be why your mail is being marked as spam.

I don't think so.

I checked your TXT entry and got :

Non-authoritative answer:
lebanesehosting.com     text =

        "v=spf1 a mx ?all"

Looks to me like your SPF record is not good enough for gmail or hotmail.
Besure you configure an IP in the SPF record to indicate that your server is the correct server.
check : http://www.openspf.org/ for more info.

GoodLuck,
