I sent the headers in a previous mail from yahoo and from gmail.

I took out the useless stuff after the from line...
You can see it looks for the DKIM and sees none so treats it neutral.
Nothing about spf at all. This mail just had a normal message like "hi how
ya doing" in it. It went straight to the spam box folder.

The last receive before the From header is the one sent from my computer to
my smtp server.
