Office 365 Email Going to Spam for Multiple Recipient Domains

Multiple recipient domains are having our email go to their spam folders. Our domain hosted by godaddy for email is This occurs when we use the Outlook windows client and also when we use the web interface. I would appreciate thoughts on the problem and ideas on a fix. I ran a test through and these are the areas it noted and what I have tried. Also at the bottom of this posting is an example mail header that went to spam, header from the recipient. Maybe an SPF setting error that is failing on providing a Senior IP, see the email header example about that.

1) You do not have a DMARC record.
MY NOTE: I did add one as recommended type TXT, Name, Value v=DMARC1; p=none, TTL 1 Hour.

MY NOTE: I added a DMARC record in DNS. And maybe 5 days ago for that. And it is still not showing up when you do a public search of my DNS. I did read something that perhaps godaddy does not support DMARC?

2) Your reverse DNS does not match with your sending domain. Your IP address is associated with the domain Nevertheless your message appears to be sent from You may want to change your pointer (PTR type) DNS record and the host name of your server to the same value. Here are the tested values for this check:

MY NOTE: I don't see any way to add a PTR record on the godaddy DNS for my domain. It will allow me to add records but not one of type PTR.

Have you asked the email recipients what their spam settings are set to or if they've whitelisted your email address?


The simplest solution is usually the best one.

The problem is that these email recipients were working fine using our previous domain not hosted by Godaddy and this impacts about 4 different recipient organizations. So it is not on the recipient end.  Asking them each to add our domain to their trusted senders would work but this is obviously impacting many recipient organizations and we need to fix it on the Godaddy end.  Meaning, we can't ask each and every recipient organization we work with to add us to their trusted senders list.  The SPF situation seems to be the issue, Sender IP reverse lookup.  Need ideas to fix that.  Godaddy doesn't seem to see that as an issue.  But it obviously is an issue.
