    Does anyone have any experience with this? My site has a signup where the user needs to verify their email address, but sites like hotmail, yahoo, and aol all redirect the emails to the members junk folder. Sites like Gmail and others don't.

    Any suggestions on how to prevent this?

    More content, less links = less spam.

    Avoid duplicated words etc

    I doubt it's blacklisted already.

    Unless he sends out a shitload of emails.

    We send out a ton of email campaigns and it usually takes a few months before it gets blacklisted.

    Verify the headers of the emails you are sending. If the ip address doesn't match the domain you are sending from hotmail will junk it.

    The site isn't even a month old, so I doubt it was blacklisted. It's currently on a VPS setup with liquidweb. I believe it uses 1 of 4 IPs.

    doesnt matter how old your vps is, if that domain is blacklisted, this happens.

    talk to liquid web about getting you anew ip.

    Your ip is not blacklisted. Check your SPF records for the domain.
