I’m having some issues about email deliverity, all emails are been sent to spam.
I already have MX, SPF and PTR records configured.
I recently read about the need of having a DMARC record added.
Value: v=DMARC1; p=none
But it didn’t work.
I changed the value to:
v=DMARC1; p=reject; sp=none; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400
And it still does not work.
Any help ?
If you view one of your emails in google, then go to the triple dots and click “show original” Gmail will tell you what’s up with the email.
Specifically, if SPF/DKIM/DMARC are succeeding:
See if all three of these are passing for your emails.
all three passing means Gmail knows for certain that your domain’s emails are authenticated and can associate spam findings to your domain’s reputation.
If your emails are still going to spam with all three of those passing, it could be one of the following:
- your domain has bad spam/unwanted email reputation
- your domain regularly does not respect unsubscribe requests (Gmail now requires you immediately unsubscribe the user when they click the unsubscribe link)
- the email messages themselves are detected as spam
- another reason that only Google knows
In all of these situations, there’s not much you can do to fix emails going to spam. Over time your domain’s reputation will regenerate as no email is detected as spam in Gmail’s filters, but this is not always foolproof.
All we can say for certain is that the DMARC setup is not preventing your emails from going to inboxes.
Thanks for your replies!
How do I know if my MX record is also well configured ?
Your MX records don’t impact deliverability at all, so all you need to do to validate that you can receive email at your email host.
