Moving Mail Hosting

After having a come-to-Jesus discussion with Dreamhost tech support (I said, “Pretty please help me fix this or I’m leaving.” They said, “It is unfixable Google Workspace might magically fix it”) I moved my gmail account to a paid Google Workspace account. The hope is that for $6/month, they’ll fix my intractable spam problem (whenever I send email to a new person from @Lee.org, it falls into their spam folder for unknown reasons). It’s kinda exciting seeing all my gmail email being migrated to my new account. All 62,000 emails going back to 2011! And I might just fold in my Outlook email going back to 2002 and my RFDMail and Eudora going back to 199-something!

    In response to a friend who suggested I set my DNS up better…

    The thing is…
    >SPF, DMARC, and domain keys. Look at email headers from working emails and look at the ones from lee.org.

    Done, done, done, and done. And still the going-to-spam problem remained! :-(

    This week, I’m going to create a new gmail address and try sending to it. It better effing make it through!

    One important item: At my free @gmail address, I get about 100 spams/day in my spam folder. It’s a pain in the ass to wade through every month but every month I find something like 4 important, legit emails in the pile of 3,000. Now that I’m forwarding it to my Google Workspace account, I get like 2 spams/day in my spam folder!
