    I'm using external nameservers for a Cpanel server, and I have server system e-mails/cronjobs forwarding to gmail, but (almost) everything ends up in the spam folder.

    What records can I add for the hostname in my external nameservers to reduce the chance of mail ending up in my spam folder?

    I'm figuring the SPF txt should be like this, and I can just add that to the external nameserver:
    v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:serveripaddress ~all

    What should the PTR record look like?

    Is there anything else I can do? I've read that adding a DKIM record might not make sense.
