    I have couple of domains where I run a website and I have created email accounts for all of these domains.

    I did a test and sent an email from each of these email accounts to my Gmail accounts (couple of them), but the emails goes automatically to spam box.

    One of my buddies told me that the email I sent to him from these domains went to his spambox as well (he doesnt have a gmail account).

    I asked from the support of my webhosting account and they told me to enable Domain Keys and SPF from the cPanel and so I did, but it didn't help.

    All of my domains are legit (no spam activity) and has been registered only by me.

    What could possibly cause this?

    Many webhosting companies rent out multiples sites to the same IP, someone sharing your IP could be blacklisted

    What if I buy a dedicated IP from them - would that solve the problem?

    I'm just speaking from experience with Godaddy, I know for a fact that they share the IP, they charge like 3 dollars a month PER SITE for each dedicated IP, for a guy like myself in microniche-ing, that's too much.

    But back on topic, there is a website that allows you to check what other websites are hosted on you IP, http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/web-sites-on-web-server/

    It will even HIGHLIGHT the sites that may contain adult material.

    You will be sadly dissapointed to find out how many sites share you IP, the first thing I would do is CHECK to see if this is your problem before you spend money on a dedicated.

    However, I use aweber and almost all my mails hit inbox, with exception to HOTMAIL, for some reason I can't crack hotmails inbox, even with a 0% spam rating, but other more reputable e-mail inbox's (gmail, aol, dedicated domain emails) I can hit no problem.

    Thanks for the link. But I checked my domain and it says "Found 1 domain hosted on the same web server as mydomain" and it's mydomain. So it seems I'm all alone there :)

    Anyway, I could try the dedicated ip. It's only $1.99/month where I'm hosting my websites.
