I have a shared server, meaning many people share the same IP.

When I send an email, the @website.com is different from someone else that shares the same IP with me, therefore GMail marks it as spam.

For example:

  • My website's IP is My website is mywebsite.com
  • Person 2's website's IP is hosted by the same host, and as such their IP is
  • Person 2's website is person2.com. When they send an email, it gets sent from theiremail@person2.com
  • When I send an email, it gets sent from myemail@mywebsite.com

According to GMail's spam thing: "Use the same address in the 'From:' header on every bulk mail you send."

Again, the only similarities between our websites is the IP. However, this causes GMail to mark both our mail as spam.

Is there a way to sort this out with GMail?

Agreed - the question itself is good, but it isn't about using Gmail. –  Andrew Lott Jun 25 '13 at 14:43
Okay, then can someone migrate it again, if migrating twice is even possible? –  Chipperyman Jun 25 '13 at 17:58
Double migrations aren't really supported. Your best bet would be to repost. –  ChrisF Jun 25 '13 at 18:05
