I have set up SPF with DMARC as well as DKIM. I have never sent suspicious emails. I even add OpenPGP signing to my emails. SpamAssassin and GMail filters seem to not have any problems, when I check it with external tools. Yet still, my emails keep landing in spam folders of people unless they specifically add me to their contacts.
What could be the reason? Do email clients/servers not like email from custom domains? Or is it just because my email server is in Russia? 🙄
@NickKaramoff Your email volume is probably too low. And yes, Russia may affect your IP reputation as well.
@NickKaramoff Seems like you have set up the heavy stuff but I wonder if you have set a reverse dns record?
@0xedd1e I don't think I can. My email is set up with an external provider, and I don't have access to their nameservers to make a PTR record.
@NickKaramoff make sure you have reverse IP/PTR configured. Using a Russian IP definitely won’t be helping though.
