Dedicated Mail Server
The mailserver we were using had a shared IP address which gmail blacklisted.
We are now using a dedicated IP address. This has
the following features to ensure emails are successfully delivered:
SPF and DKIM Signing (Our domain, payback.ie has been verified)
Fully control email sending reputation.
Use a known, unchanging IP addresses for whitelisting or security purposes.
You will not be able to specify a sender address for the payslip
emails. This is because the emails have to be verified as coming from
our domain - payback.ie.
If you attempt to send an email with a different sender address, then
the recipent email servers will reject the message as it will be
deemed to have been spoofed (a common spammer trick)
All payslip emails now have the sender address of 'firstname.lastname@example.org'
You can specify a BCC address so you know your emails have been sent
and you have a copy of them.
