Recently I decided that I wanted to run my own MTA. Downloaded qmail, applied a couple of patches and it was done. The problem is making sure my mail is not marked as spam by the major MTAs out there, gmail and hotmail both mark my mails as spam. So far I’ve:

– made sure I’m not running an open relay (obviously)

– made sure a reverse lookup to my IP matches my host

– made sure my IP wasn’t already in any spam IP blacklist

– added SPF

– added DKIM

– run a lot of tests at glockapps.com

It’s still not enough. I don’t know what else to do, is it possible to run your own MTA, for personal use in 2016? Who, here, is doing it successfully?
