Avoid Yahoo, Hotmail Spam Folder
I was using straight php mail and went to the spam folder.

I thought if I used SMTP, it'd avoid this, yet it's still going to spam folder on yahoo....

Can anyone help?

Re: Avoid Yahoo, Hotmail Spam Folder
There are many factors when calculating a probability of spam.
  • Reverse DNS is important.
  • SPF is not very important but can hurt if configured incorrectly.
  • Look at the return-path in your email headers. 'nobody' in many cases and this is also bad for spam filters.
  • Your IP address of server can also be an issue.
