We have two WHM/Cpanel hosting webservers that are having severe email issues across all 130+ domains that are on these two servers.
Issues we are having include being blocked from gmail, yahoo, etc. We do not allow spam, but some domains are currently and falsely blacklisted.
Additionally we are having trouble with incoming messages bouncing back to the senders as well.
We believe the right person for this job will understand all things email like domain keys, SPF records, proper web mail setup, P0P3, IMAP, eXim, DNS, MX records, Spam assassin, how to close open relays, greylists, etc. Also you should be familiar with the reasons why small web hosting companies are having a difficult time with yahoo and the other big email companies and how to overcome them. Experience with cpanel and whm will also be helpful.
Your job will be to evaluate our setup, design and implement a comprehensive solution to our email woes including helping us detect and stop incoming and outgoing spam sent through our email servers.** ** We will provide you with full access to our servers, so you must be ethical and trustworthy.
