Mail using SMTP port 1025 goes to spam folder


I've been using smtp port 25 and for mail and everything works fine from the telus network. When I switch to port 1025 so that I can send mail from outside the telus network all emails to gmail accounts go to the recipient's spam folder. Recipients on yahoo and telus seem to be working normally, it's just gmail that has this problem.


I've tried this from 2 different accounts sending to 4 different gmail accounts with the same results. The mail header has this which looks suspicious:



Received-SPF: none ( does not designate permitted sender hosts);

Hmmm..... I though it was due to attachments I was adding. A friend has not been receiving emails I send him, but I thought it was the type of file I sent in th attachment.


Hotmail is working normally as well.


This is happening to me as well, and is recent,  as I previously could send to gmail addresses no problem.



I'll dig a bit more when he is free.

Just curious, but why don't you guys use port 587 instead to see if the issues are resolved?

As far as I know Telus only uses port 25 and 1025. Does Telus have port 587 open?

Port 587 isn't open.

Have you tried using it and it doesn't work?


I have been using it on many computers with MS Outlook and haven't had an issue, either inside the Telus network or not.

Yes, I tried it in Outlook and got a login error. If it works for you can you kindly post your settings. Thanks.
