    PHP emails classified as Junk Mail

    I just switched over to a VPS server a few weeks ago from a regular reseller hosting account. Since the move all of my client with PHP based emails have been complaining that their emails are ending up in the junk mail folder with all the major email services (yahoo, hotmail, etc...)

    I have done everything the hosting provider I lease the VPS from suggested (set up reverse DNS & enabling phpsuexec), but all of the php based emails being sent from the php mail() function are classified as junk.

    I haven't been able to find any answers and the folks at yahoo and hotmail don't seem to be inclined to help. Does anyone have any suggestions for trouble shooting this?

    Here is a header from one of the emails:

    Have you tried setting up an SPF record for muse.nomadichabit.com and fantasyfootballhelpers.com ?

    That might be helpful.

    Thank you.

    Yes, setting up an SPF record for fantasyfootballhelpers.com should help/stop it...

    Something like:

    Code:
    fantasyfootballhelpers.com. IN TXT v=spf1 a mx ip4:70.85.162.12
    would, I believe, do the trick.

    Also go to http://dnsstuff.com/ and input your IPs, to see if they are in any Spam databases.

    Your hosting provider may have a separate mail server you can relay through which might be easier, but yes, SPF is the likely culprit here.
