Default Outlook emails are marked as spam, but Gmail emails are not.

I'm using Outlook 2007 to send/receive email via my Google Apps (GA) account, effectively using gmail as my exchange server. I'm also using the google sync tool to synchronize the information between Outlook and GA. Everything works perfectly, except:

Sometimes, when I send an email to someone via Outlook, it goes in to the recipients spam folder. If I send them the exact same email using the GA gmail interface (from within Chrome, IE, or Firefox), and send it to the exact same address, they get the email just fine.

My assumption is that theres something thats either not configured correctly in Outlook, or that Outlook is adding to the emails that the spam filters are picking up on.

Any thoughts?

Here's the email header from the google account:

Default

aquabob,

When you send from your Outlook client it may be trying to relay off a different authoritative mail server. This could cause your mail to end up in their spam folder since you are sending from an autoritatve mail server that is not your own.

Setting up and SPF Record should resolve the trouble you are experiencing. You may want to get in contact with whoever hosts your email and domain in regards to setting up an SPF Record.

Hope this helps.
