    your IP might be blacklisted, I would suggest that first check your IP.

    If you are using cPanel as the panel in your server the below given information will be useful for you.


    You can enable the “Email Authentication” feature in WHM ~> Feature Manager, which will enable the Email Authentication icon in the users’ cPanels where they can create SPF records for their domain(s).


    There are scripts in /usr/local/cpanel/bin that can install this on a per-user basis:

    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/spf_installer $user

    (and corresponding scripts to remove, like spf_uninstaller)

    If you want to set SPF for all the domains in the server you can run the below given script.

    for user in `ls -A /var/cpanel/users` ; do /usr/local/cpanel/bin/spf_installer $user ; done

    To set up the server to automatically create an SPF record for new accounts, edit /scripts/postwwwacct and paste in the following code:


    my %OPTS = @ARGV;
    $ENV{USER} = “$OPTS{‘user’}”;
    system q(/usr/local/cpanel/bin/spf_installer $USER);

    To verify an SPF record, you can run a DNS check:

    dig $domain TXT
