Unintentional Email Spoofing

My company's email is processed by an Exchange server; however, our website uses the same email addresses also.  The problem is the following:

The server that is getting the email knows that it did not originate from mail.bioplexnutrition.com but from the GoDaddy servers.  It, therefore, assumes the address has been spoofed  and when you combine that with the content of the email (html format, etc.) the mail scores high enough to be marked as spam.

Is there a way to work around this problem?  We aren't spam as the clients have opted in and are requesting this information.

Thanks,
Kel

This would only be a problem if you are using SPF records.
Spoofing is a major problem, so anything that looks like spoofing will cause problems.

If you are using spf records, then ensure that the GoDaddy servers are in the list of servers.
