I have tried many times sending email to Yahoo and Hotmail. The result is that my emails are in their junk mail folder.

But when I sent to Gmail, it works fine.

Do I have any misstake? Do I have to check at Maildir?

* I use Mandriva with postfix according to http://www.falkotimme.com/howtos/perfect_setup_mandrake_10_2/

thanks

1. mark the domain in question as not spam in yahoo
2. if running server from home network, do a whois.sc and see if your isp is listed in spam.

Hope that helps

I don't know if this is already the case, but I read something that Hotmail isn't going to accept emails from domains that have SPF set up. :( Maybe it's the same with Yahoo. You might have to create an SPF record in DNS for your Domain.

I have tested both yahoo and msn and neither site junked any of my mail. It is true the MSN isn't setting up a SPF. I don't think yahoo will go a long way as long as SPF is enabled on there mail servers. Way too many corp. users' email get junked because of it.

edit: I re-read and I got it backwards. MSN was going to use SPF.. My appologies.

In other words, please ignore this post. It makes no sense. :mad:

I server is at co-location place. There has DNS server for me already. Do I have to setup SPF record on my server?

In ISPConfig Management-> Server setting -> DNS, I just edit default Ns1 and Ns2 as the ISP DNS server instead my co-location server. I don't know whether it helps or not.

You must create the SPF record on the DNS server that is authoritative for your domain. You can run dig yourdomain.com to find out what servers are authoritative for your domain.

When I sent out email the To header is

kli4587@gmail.com, mamm2548@yahoo.com@example.mydomain.com

1.why example.mydomain.com is there?

2. Does it make any problem when I sent mail?

In fact, I had change it to ns.mydomain.net in ISPConfig->Management->Setting hostname = ns
Domain = mydomain.net
