    Default Yahoo puts me in spam

    I have a problem with yahoo as it puts me in spam because my mail sends that mail form 127.0.0.1(localhost). Can I know that if there is any solution for it I use nat to my public IP from my firewall.

    I don't think localhost could be the issue. This is standard behavior for mail sent from the web client (as opposed to a POP or IMAP client), and I send messages from mine to a home address on sbcglobal (one of the yahoo! family) on a routine basis; they never get marked as spam. There must be something else going on.

    The header you included below does not suggest a reason for marking as spam either--the actual "tests" line:
    tests=[ALL_TRUSTED=-1.8, AWL=0.370, BAYES_00=-2.599]
    adds up to a strongly negative score--and a high POSITIVE score leads to spam designation.

    If you're still landing in a spam folder something else must be going on--but I doubt it's the localhost address on your mail.

    Is this header from a message you found in the junk folder of your yahoo account?

    Does the message arrive in your Yahoo! account, perhaps arrive in the bulk folder?

    If the message arrives in your Yahoo! account, can you post the header?

    make sure you have a reverse dns for your mail server. Yahoo will mark it as spam if it can not do a reverse dns.

    go to dnsstuff.com and run a report. It will tell you how things looks.

    MX Lookup Tool - Check your DNS MX Records online
    Try using this site (or any other site that checks DNS blocklists) to see whether or not your IP address has been listed on a blocklist.

    Also this line is the one that actually denotes what the Yahoo servers are seeing as the from address:
    Code:
    Received: from xx.xx.xx.xx (EHLO mail.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com) (xx.xx.xx.xx)
    this line:
    Code:
    Received: from localhost (localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1])
    Is part of the internal routing that goes on for web agent emails.

    Default In my testing with yahoo mail...

    In my testing with yahoo mail, it was the lack of a DKIM signature that ensured that our mail was delivered right into the bulk mail folder. I just tested it again, and this no longer appears to be the case. However, since I have sent mail from this account before to yahoo, it may have influenced my test.

    DKIM is something I would love to see in Zimbra. I was hoping that it would be included in 5.0, but it is not. Bug 11524 - DKIM support in MTA/Amavisd/Spamassassin

    Yahoo is big into DKIM, so I suspect that Zimbra will have good support in due time.
