Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i run fedora 8. actually someone told me SPF record could be possible the problem too?.. but then I don't hold my domain so I'd have to ask the person who holds my domain. and about the clock i'm not sure too
coz actually i checked my office email account and my friend checked his office account, all the email sent from my server automatically went into the junk box not the inbox.
Check your time settings under "System->Administration->Date&Time". If you dual boot with Windows, you will probably need to uncheck the System Clock uses UTC box. Also, set it to use NTP (the middle tab).
Look at the headers of the mail sent to your spam folder to see why it's categorised as spam.
i agree with billymayday about the dns.. have you also configured your mx records in your dns properly? maybe it has something to do with hotmail not accepting mail requests since they cannot verify that your machine is authorized to send mail using that domain..
can you also tell me if you can send email to other services like gmail and/or yahoo?

hmm i have no DNS records what so ever. I'm not running any DNS tools nor im holding my own domain name. My friend who host my domain did tell me to try call my ISP and tell them to add my domain to their record coz my ISP provides me only the IP.
I send to gmail its ok. I tried sending to my office account and my friends office email account, we find it in the junk mail. For hotmail you get nothing at all. So probably it IS something to do with the spam check?..
I will try cal the ISP that provided me the IP too tmr.
Yes as expected you will also be able to send to gmail but not to yahoo or hotmail.
I also want to know if the dns mod will fix your problem for mine's also the same. Here we host our own dns but the problem is in our isp since it seems that they are using a firewall that prevents our dns from accepting connections to port 53. Within the domain of the ISP we can connect to port 53 but from outside the ISP not anymore. I don't know why but connecting from outside to the port 80 works well. It's really because of a firewall i guess.
