Add an SPF DNS record if you don’t want emails sent by your system defined as spam

The problem is, 

  1. Your web application’s domain name is www.foo.com

  2. Your server IP is 123.123.123.123, and it sends emails to users from  support@foo.com 

  3. When a user  danni@gmail.com gets an email from it,  GMAIL may consider it is spam because it doesn’t know whether 123.123.123.123 really represents support@foo.com . 

 What you need to do is to setup a SPF DNS record for your domain, to tell people that 123.123.123.123 can send emails from xxx@foo.com. On Godaddy, you can do this according to,
