This makes me angry:
I run my own mail server in a VPS. Its IP address is NOT blacklisted, and I have both SPF and DKIM properly configured. I do NOT send bulk mail.
But still, Gmail classifies my personal emails as SPAM.
Same email with same exactly same contents, sent through PoBox SMTP server goes to INBOX. Directly from VPS, goes to SPAM. No explanations, no public blacklist. It looks like they just don't want people going "indie". Sigh.
Gmail enters the "extend" phase of Embrace, Extend, Extinguish by creating new proprietary features for email then forcing non-gmail users the view the mail through a link with Google Login (and sometimes SMS confirmation!)
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Mastodon, is in fact, GNU/Mastodon, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Mastodon.
Mastodon is not a social network unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU Social platform, federation and the vital ostatus standard comprising a full instance.
Your Basic Schuppentier.
