I have a mail server. I host it at Rackspace. When I send mail to the users of my website, it is going to spam. I checked my gmail account for testing and it is in the spam folder and they direct me here for reasons:
On Rackspace, I have setup a ReverseDNS Record to the IP address of the server that hosts my mail server.
I have added the name of the mail server, like: mail.blah.com
I send the mail from: firstname.lastname@example.org and the mail server is mail.blah.com; but even though it's not the same domain, it is in the same mail server, so that should be okay, right?
Can someone help me with why it is flagging it as spam?
I send mail with this code. I really don't know what all that stuff is, it was in an example, so I could very well be doing something wrong.
Set NewMailer = CreateObject("CDO.Message"
'Send the message using the network (SMTP over the network).
") = 2
") = 25
'Use SSL for the connection (True or False)
") = False
") = 60
'If your server requires outgoing authentication, uncomment the lines below and use a valid email address and password.
'Basic (clear-text) authentication
") = 1
'Your UserID on the SMTP server
Any ideas how to be in compliance with mail requirements?
(this happens to be in asp classic, but I imagine that has nothing to do with it)
