    Smile SMTP C++ CGI windows app using MailEnable showing as spam

    Hello all,

    I'm having some trouble trying to send automatic reminders from my cgi c++ programs... The mail sends out just fine, but about half of the email is marked as spam from one of the servers its going through.

    I just want to be able to send email reminders to users at our office to remind them of things like, their order is due by 0000-00-00 or a new purchase order request has been placed.

    My program works just fine, but the email gets a [SPAM] header in
    front of the subject. But only for some of them.

    OS: Windows XP
    SMTP Server: MailEnable
    Programming Language: C++

    SMTP Commands used:
    MAIL FROM: <someone@yeah.com>
    RCPT TO: <mailing_to@someone.com>
    Content-Type: text/html
    Subject: blah

    <html> <body>
    some data

    Those aren't the exact commands, but it gives you
    a good idea.

    Thanks in advance to everyones efforts in assisting me,

    What kind of mail server are you sending/relaying through?
    What kind of mail server is on the receiving end?
    Where is your application ran from (personal workstation, website, a different server)?
    What spam filtering service/program is being used on the clients that mark your emails as spam?

    A lot of email gets voted as junk/spam due to DNS record problems. Start by checking your sending domain at www.dnsreport.com
    If you are learning PHP, developing PHP code, or debugging PHP code, do yourself a favor and check your web server log for errors and/or turn on full PHP error reporting in php.ini or in a .htaccess file to get PHP to help you.
