Hey, guys! A bit of a noob here, running his first email campaign. Last week, a few of my emails bounced, giving me the following error: “550 High probability of spam”.
I checked my score at mail-tester.com, and sure enough - my score was 3/10. The main detractors (-3 points each) were these two:
[SPF] does not allow your server to use [the email I’m outreaching from]
Your message failed the DMARC verification
I tried fixing No. 1 - last week, I changed the DNS record to the one they suggested. However, even though I changed it, it still appears as an error.
Regarding issue No. 2, Mail-tester says:
“You are not allowed to send a message with this address”, and then it quotes the _dmarc entry I have on Cloudflare.
When I go on dmarcguide.globalcyberalliance.org/, and enter my domain, it says that my DMARC is good (the full message reads: “Thank you for getting started with DMARC. You are currently at the lowest level and receiving reports, which is a great starting point. Please make sure to review the reports…”)
What am I doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
