I built a free, open-source, encrypted, and private solution at https://github.com/niftylettuce/forward-email. This service does not store logs, it is completely private and simply acts as a proxy. No email is ever stored on the server, it's all proxied in memory to the recipient's mail server (view the source on GitHub if you'd like to learn more about ...

If I'm a single user, with a single domain, then does that mean I can only email 130 people a day using SMTP? That limit seems low. No, that means you can email as many users, but it should be limited to 130 different domains. This isn't a problem if you want to send mostly emails to popular domains such as @gmail @outlook @yahoo and similar. If you, ...

You will need to add an MX record to your domains DNS. If you're using your Registrar to do the email forwarding, you'll add their e-mail servers for the MX records. Without an MX record, mail servers have no idea which servers to send the mail to.

Simple solution: Use http://improvmx.com/ and then set your MX records and you are done.

You'll need to add a Mandrill DKIM record for your domain. The SPF and DKIM pass, but it's based on messages being authenticated for mandrillapp.com, not your domain (ie, the Return-Path domain is being used for message authentication). In order to authenticate as your domain, and in turn pass the DMARC alignment check, you need both SPF and DKIM for the "...

One disadvantage is that sending email from Gmail would not appear to come from your domain name. It would come from the Gmail address. There is a partial workaround. You could set the "reply to" email address in the Gmail account. But the instructions say that it will only change where replies go, not where the mail appears to come from: ...

This has changed. As of sep-2014: The CNAME target should be: ghs.googlehosted.com And you enable the URLs from dashboard -> Company Profile > Custom URLs Google's support page

Typically an organization like Spamhaus.org will maintain those kinds of lists. If you find out which organization blacklisted you, they are usually pretty good about getting you removed if you contact them.

From Google's bulk senders guidelines: While Gmail works hard to deliver all legitimate mail to a user's inbox, it's possible that some legitimate messages may be marked as spam. Gmail does not accept 'whitelisting' requests from bulk senders, and we can't guarantee that all of your messages will bypass our spam filters. To make sure our users receive all ...

If you're using http, you may need to make the switch to https. Check your IP address to make sure it's clean. You can check your blacklist status here: MX Toolbox.

It's possible that your domain's IP address was once spamming emails. If your VPS provider used the same IP address for a previous client, this could be the case. Also possible is that your domain was once owned by someone else who was spamming people with it, and because the domain didn't become popular that you don't see a history with domain ownership/...

After long time I have found the problem. And the problem is... Gmail. Gmail was incorrectly parsing the SPF record. The record itself was correct and it was validating correctly in ie. mxtoolbox. It was also validating correctly in Gmail (yeah, look at the listings in first post about validation results). However, checking it with Google's MX checker ...

What do you mean by 'sending an email through my application'. If you have a server other than a google server touching it and forwarding it, and it says the originator is supposed to be somebody@gmail.com, then that alone could trigger Google to mark it as 'spam'. Basically, any server that touches an email will add headers to the message so that it is ...

There are reports of login limits and accounts becoming temporarily frozen, sometimes requiring a Captcha login. If that occurs, then you'll be delayed in receiving orders... This seems like a very inefficient business solution - emails from different servers can get blocked, rejected, etc... Have you thought about using Python (or PHP) for a server-side ...

You have at least two options to get around this: Add the sender address, which you added to the Joomla! configuration, to the whitelist of your Gmail account. Alternatively... Re-configure Joomla! to use an SMTP account to send the mails instead of using the internal mail function.

For me drawbacks of this approach is becoming more and more dependable on Google overall. We are already Google products ourselves. Google sell our data to data brokers, pass to NSA, use it to push pestilent ads, etc. We give away our privacy a little each day. And in this case it is not about your personal box for spam but a business email account.

You can try Google Apps But now is not "free", and you have to pay if you want to use "email services" from Google GMail. it says in Google Apps Pricing you have to pay $5/user/month or $10/user/month if you want to pay "more". You can try it for free for 30 days if you want.

You better point your domain first to FreeHosting name server and then on their CP, you can setup the DNS to point your mail service to GMail server. Hope it help

At Gmail Support area there's the reference to the daily sending limit, which is 500 messages per day or a huge number of undeliverable messages. In an effort to fight spam and prevent abuse, Google will temporarily disable your account if you send messages to more than 500 recipients or if you send a large number of undeliverable messages. If you use ...

Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) is being adopted by many major email providers like Google, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and others. As can be read about here, it's aimed at standardizing email authentication through SPF and DKIM mechanisms already being used by most mail servers. Adding a DMARC policy record is very similar ...

The issue is caused by inconsistent between return-path and header From:. Return-Path: mandrillapp.com From: @seesawsf.com SPF and DKIM check the domain using RFC5321.MailFrom (generally Return-Path:) DMARC checks the domain using RFC5322.MailFrom (header From:) Ref: https://space.dmarcian.com/how-can-spfdkim-pass-and-yet-dmarc-fail/ If the domain is ...

Google not only depends on third party blacklists but also maintains their own internal blacklist. To remove your domain / IP from gmails blacklist you can use the form located at https://support.google.com/mail/contact/msgdelivery to report the issue and get it dealt with but Google may not automatically remove the blacklist entry depending on what Google ...

Contact Mail Chimp.. There are a lot of reasons why email are not being received and the top 1 is that the email was rejected. Gmail will reject most emails when the sender IP have no Reverse DNS information (example IP 1.2.3.4 must have a corresponding 4.3.2.1.xxxx.xx) Mails will also be rejected if the IP or reverse IP have no matching host answering ...

The actual resolution came down to changing my DNS manager. The original cpanel to manage DNS provided by nativespace.com was not working for whatever reason. After I switched my DNS manager to godaddy.com and reconfigured MX records, the email started working. I upvoted answer provided by @Vhortex for his suggestion on using http://mxtoolbox.com which ...

You do not need a SSL certificate in order to send a secure email, the same way desktop computers, tablets and mobiles phones don't need one either. This could be happening because your server doesn't have OpenSSL installed, or your script is at fault. You can check if you have OpenSSL installed by doing: openssl version. If you need to install OpenSSL ...

This is your problem: I recently implemented a DMARC policy of p=reject Use a less strict rule for testing until you can confirm everything works as expected. Something like this will give you emailed reports of any problems so you know what to fix: v=DMARC1; p=none; rua=mailto:you@example.com; Use an online DMARC policy generator to create your policy,...

You don't need to send a high volume of emails to be marked as spam, actually, one of the most important things are the ratio between people that clicked on "marked as spam", successful deliveries and bounces (especially hard bounces). Have you validated the emails from your list before sending? Depending on how you acquired the e-mails on your list, you ...

The markup you're looking for is schema data that needs to be embedded in the email HTML. You can find details of it in Gmail's reference docs: https://developers.google.com/gmail/markup/reference/hotel-reservation Gmail will then scan the e-mail and in most cases automatically generate the associated features for a user.
