dns manager settings
I'm not a hero when it comes to dns settings, and after I discovered that mail sent from a domain on my linode-server always ends up in the spam folder of gmail-accounts, I started digging into it.
After digging into intodns.com I discovered there are a few things wrong, but after 2 days of experimenting with dns settings in DirectAdmin I'm a bit lost.
I guess things must be set wrong in the main DNS Manager of Linode.
All help appreciated !!!!!!
Intodns.com complains about "only" 3 things :
1) Missing nameservers reported by parent
FAIL: The following nameservers are listed at your nameservers as nameservers for your domain, but are not listed at the parent nameservers (see RFC2181 5.4.1). You need to make sure that these nameservers are working.If they are not working ok, you may have problems!
2) Stealth NS records sent
Stealth NS records were sent:
3) Duplicate MX A records
ERROR: It seems that all your MX records have the same IP(s):
There is no use on having multiple MX records pointing to the same ip.
THE SETTINGS OF MY LINODE DNS MANAGER :
Primary DNS Email Default TTL Refresh Rate Retry Rate Expire Time Options
Name Server Subdomain
Mail Server Preference Subdomain
Hostname IP Address
Hostname Aliases to TTL
Name Value TTL
server "v=spf1 a mx ip4:18.104.22.168 ~all"
Service Domain Priority Weight Port Target TTL Options
Why should my content look suspicious ? I only write normal letters. I can't tell all people on different domains on my server to rephrase their content to pass gmails filters
I found out a PTR record was missing, so I already added that. But that doesn't solve the 3 DNS issues of my server.
Now it's just the intodns.com problems that need to be solved.
Can someone help me out with this ?

You should add ns5.linode.com on your registrar's list of nameservers if possible. If it is not possible, don't worry about it.
You should remove ns1 and ns2.webfoundry-hosting.be from DNS and deactivate the nameserver on your Linode; there is no reason for you to run your own.
You should remove the MX record pointing to server.webfoundry-hosting.be; it is a worthless duplicate.
Your SPF record currently only designates your Linode as a permitted sender for @webfoundry-hosting.be mail. Mail from all other hosts is considered a
It seems unlikely that any of these changes will actually help, but they answer your question.
Indeed it will be unlikely that these changes will solve any mail-issues, but at least the settings will be "as they should be" and get rid of those pesky red issues on intodns.com wich troubled me.
Just one last small question … if I remove ns1 and ns2.webfoundry-hosting.be from DNS and deactivate the nameserver on my Linode … will my users still be able to register their domains using these nameservers? (they are still defined in DirectAdmin and my server).
