Default Wrong email headers causing my emails to be blocked as spam?

Hi,

Emails sent from my server are being blocked as spam, I'm worried that this is due to not having the right headers. Below are the headers from a blocked email. I am using postfix to send email, my site is mywebsite.com and the name of the machine hosting my site is server123.onlinehome-server.com. I would really appreciate any help with this! Let me know if there is any other information I can give that would be helpful. Thank you.

Is your server connected to the internet trough a dynamic IP?

Hi,

I have a static IP, and this is the only website hosted on the machine (a virtual server). My /etc/hosts file includes my machine name: server123.onlinehome-server.com, but not the website name: mywebsite.com.
