Ok so I have been trying to solve an email spam problem for some time now but have not been having any luck

I have a client who has email set up with google apps they need to authenticate email from 3 locations

1. google apps
2. 3rd party reservations software
3. Campagin monitor newsletter system (cmail1.com)

I listed another questions on here

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Protocols/DNS/Q_26869675.html?cid=239#a35063117

and as a result created the following spf record

v=spf1 a mx mx:rezserve.com include:_spf.google.com include:cmail1.com ~all

however when email is sent from rezserve.com from the address reservations@whistlerreservations.com it still ends up in the google spam folder on the receiving account.

Here is the email header from the message that rezserve.com sends out on behalf of whistlerreservations.com can somebody please let me know what changes have to be made so these messages are not flagged as spam

Check if IP address corresponding to 3rd party reservations software and cmail1.com are in a blacklist. You can test using this webs:

Sorry to see you are still having trouble with this.  I found an article where Google exhibited this behavior when the Return-Path was set incorrectly in the application.

http://www.karakas-online.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3682

Their headers look a lot like yours:
Return-Path: <apache@fbc.openmax.com> ....
Received-SPF: neutral (gmail.com: 67.15.16.43 ....
---
Return-Path: <apache@rezserve.com> ...
Received-SPF: neutral (google.com: 204.14.93.102 ...

They list a solution in the 4th post on how they configured a return address on their site.

I hope this works for you!
