It seem the SPF setup is not correct.
I just created my account and the activation mail from MozillaZine was marked as spam because of misconfigured SPF record.

From the message header:
Code: Select all
spf=softfail ( domain of transitioning does not designate 2605:bc80:3010::137 as permitted sender)

(the activation mail was to to my gmail account)

I see:

Received-SPF: softfail
( Sender is not authorized by default to use '' in 'mfrom' identity, however domain is not currently prepared for false failures (mechanism '~all' matched));

in mail I get from MozillaZine in my Fastmail account, so its not just Gmail that is effected. There is nothing we can do about it at the moment unfortunately.
