E-mails Going Into Spam Or Not Appearing After Sever Change

Hi Folks,

For my own records, and to help others who might have this issue about their MailChimp or Aweber RSS emails going to readers spam folders after changing servers, or whatever reason, I've found the solution.

I switched servers in June, and for two months, readers couldn't get my RSS e-mails. Here is the solution below.


I looked at the header for my test messages that was filtered to spam and the DMARC is failing
on your messages. Email clients use DMARC to authenticate who sent the messages. In your case,
Gmail cannot verify that the email is actually coming from you. This is because the DMARC for your
From Address is sent to p=quarantine, but it needs to be set to p=none. This is something that
will need to be changed on your end of things and the settings for your From Address.

At the end of this message is the header of the message that went to spam and you can see the 
DMARC is failing on this line:

dmarc=fail (p=QUARANTINE dis=QUARANTINE)

Making the change to p=none should help your messages go to subscribers inboxes.

If you have any questions or want me to test after the updates are made, please let me know.

Any idea if this works for comments? I had to get a new router and now when I comment on a bunch of blogs, my comments go right into spam. It doesn't happen on all of them, but a good many. I know it happens when I click submit and when the page refreshes, my comment isn't there and there is no "pending moderation" note. I've emailed the blog owner and sure enough they found my comment in the spam folder.
