That was clearly your fault, because your IP lives in a bad neighborhood.

It is so much more complicated than that, the issues persisted for completely separated servers even after multiple IP address changes. Running a small mail server and all your email landing in your customers inboxes is something that simply doesn’t happen like it used to.

I run my own email server (for personal use, not corporate or anything) and maybe I've been lucky with my IPs so far but I don't have a lot of issue getting my emails through. Admittedly for personal email it might be a bit easier because most of my recipients already have me in their address book which probably helps getting through the filters.

(maybe) according to google, who gives absolutely zero insight into this, or even any indication it is even so.

great, might as well go to my local astrologer to consult about deliverability issues.
