How do I fix it: Mails not coming out or not reaching my GSuite email

I am using sendmail in a web form. Mails for some reason are not reaching my Gsuite email, where as they were reaching my personal gmail account.
I tried adding a TXT record in GoDaddy (useless) as it was useful if I was using SMTP and google as the server.

Also, generally, mails in my GSuite are coming in late.

Any ideas help!

I'm sure you've looked into whether there is a problem with google service, if something is down or under maintenance.

Beyond that, do you need an mx record here at linode? I have no experience with this but have seen mx records come up in the context of email and mail servers before so it's what I think of. You may already know better, or you might want to check into that idea.


Did you setup a rDNS for the mail server?

The MX records are set in GoDaddy that manages the domain.
The problem I feel is that Linode is somehow "blocking" the mail to be sent to my domain, since if I change the mail address to another email, the mail is sent and received. Just when I use an email with my domain, it does not get to my GSuite account. (if another email like gmail is in copy, the mail is received properly).
