I have installed and configured Postfix on a VPS.

I have managed to get it so I can send and receive mail.

However every time I send mail from It, it get's marked as spam and was wondering how I stop it been flagged as spam?

Also I can only check the mail from the server, how do I configure it into Outlook or Thunderbird or something like that?

Do you have an MX Record? – slhck Aug 12 '13 at 9:03
It looks like it is set to my domain name, is that correct? – Ollie2619 Aug 12 '13 at 9:05
Get yourself an SPF record... – Aug 12 '13 at 9:06
I have used mxtoolbox and everything appears to be okay with the MX record, also I have set an SPF record, do I need to purchase one or something? – Ollie2619 Aug 12 '13 at 9:11
The final paragraph belongs in a separate question. – Michael Kjörling Aug 12 '13 at 9:56
