Hi Kam

Thanks for your prompt reply.

MailMarshal support's stance was that I should contact SURBL as the policy that is marking the email as spam is controlled by SURBL.

I was thinking maybe the message might be routing through a marked server at some point but looking at the headers it's going straight from Google to our Marshal spam server. 

I believe I have stumbled onto something. In the signature of user who is sending from fly1above.com is the domain www.pentawards.com which comes up as listed on Barracuba and INPS_DE (based on MXToolBox blacklist)

Still strange that in MailMarshal it is showing as SURBL that is the reason for it begin marked as spam ?

Since I use SURBL and you mentioned the URL in the email, looking at my email should show if the issue is SURBL.  However, it wasn't flagged:

X-Spam-Status: No, score=-1.7 required=6.6 tests=KAM_RPTR_PASSED,

And this is only affecting that domain so I'm guessing this is nothing to do with SURBL or DNS, etc.

Does MailMarshal not give you any feedback at all as to why the mail was marked as spam?  Otherwise you need to post on a MailMarshall forum to get any good feedback likely.
