Project Description

I have a website that was coded in PHP. Emails outbound from the website are using the system mail call. Mails are getting filtered in spam, specifically spam assassin, and I need someone to go over the rules it is hitting and fix them. I need all of the email system to be reviewed and make sure it is done properly for reliable email delivery. It is very important part of my site that I need working properly.

Part of this will be to make the php code use an SMTP relay solution instead of the system mail call. Something like Mandrill. One of the main problems is the mail sent using the system mail call is being sent with a from address of the shared hosting account and not that of my actual domain. The SMTP configuration options must be configurable in the site admin panel that is also coded in PHP with mysql backend.

The website is online now so care needs to be taken not to interrupt the current functionality.

Bids will not be considered unless you mention spam assassin in your bid. I will provide the filters that caught my previous emails and you must show proof of the changes that were made to address each complaint by the spam filter. Payment will not be released until SMTP is implemented and is configurable in the admin panel of the website and each problem the filter identified is shown to be addressed by the developer.

I have other PHP/mysql enhancements to this site that I would like the developer to work on in the future.
