Problems with hotmail, how i solved it


New Member

I have always had problems with hotmail sending emails from my VPSes direct to Junk Folder, even with Reverse DNS of my IPs correctly configured.

About 1 or 2 weeks ago CPanel added the function called Email Authentication which allows you to set the SPF record and DomainKeys.

I have enabled it and waited 24 hours for the DNS propagation. Now me and my clients can send emails to hotmail directly to inbox folder.

I don't know if it will work for you but it worked to me and at least 5 domains that i tested.

Just wanted to share this since i have seen that a lot of people here have this kind of problems.

Yes, SPF have been around for a long time and i have been using it for a long time too ( automatically configuring with dns zone templates ).

But... I only noticed the option on CPanel interface about 2 weeks ago.
I sure hope this works, because this problem has been bugging me for some time. My mail also gets junked on Yahoo...
