    I am planning to launch a forum, ofcourse that will be sending subscription to thread emails and other emails for the members.

    what is the best hosting solutions so mails sending from the forum are not blacklisted.

    If all plans goes well, i would expect 100,000 members in the first year and growing.

    I know there are better hosting companies like a2hosting, urljet, bluehost vps , rackspace

    wondering about mail setup.

    can somebody suggest proactive setup for mails and mail servers . So the mails originating from m forum are not rejected or blacklisted. Even if it is blacklisted what should i do to remove it

    thanks

    Hosting isn't your issue.
    Your need to use SPF etc. on your DNS or use a trusted/paid mail service.

    Thank you, however initially Just a VPS out of box is enough for mail service without a problem. I can purchase amazon ses when the site grows

    Whatever host you go with, specifically ask for an IP address that has no spam blacklist issues.

    Certainly, once you get assigned IPs, check them yourself for trouble.
    Here are two ways to check lots of lists:

    http://mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx

    If the IP has any listings, request another.

    Once you get the site running, it's important to do everything you can to stay clean.
    Use DKIM and SPF. Of course, don't send spam. :)
    Make sure any lists you have are true double opt-in.
    Keep your list clean by always removing undeliverable emails after they bounce.
