Re: Problem with running your own mail server now is the big 3 do not trust your email by default

I have to say that that's not my experience; I have SPF, but not DKIM, and other than the very occasional wobbly with Hotmail (which has a habit of vanishing mail into black holes, though I suspect more to do with user prefs than anything else), I don't have any problems.

I have a server set up in a dedicated hosting centre as well, as we send out newsletters to around 1500 people a week, and again largely no problems, nor indeed with the various welcome messages when people sign up to that site.

If what you're suggesting is true, how would anyone ever be able to launch a new service that requires verification of users' email addresses?
