Mails end in spam if i don't send from IPv6

    The previous owner of Ipv4 mail server sent spam and has been banned by Google. I also have Ipv6 address and when i send mails to google using an Ipv6, my mail don't end in the spam folder but the normal inbox.

    Cpanel problem:
    Previously the cpanel team has decided to force the IPv4 address as sender address preference. So, when i send an email from an account on cpanel, it always ends in Spam folder because it never sends from IPv6 address but the IPv4 address .
    Usually IPv6 has always the priority just like in RFC6724
    Would it be possible to put the IPv6 address first before IPv4 as mail sender address?

    The big picture:
    Since today all the IPv4 that we get were already leased to somebody else, IPv6 ranges are cleaner because they never have been used before. Ipv6 addresses are a good opportunity for people who have mail server to have their mail received in the future.

    thank you.
