I'm using GoDaddy as my hosting provider, as I don't have the resources to dedicate to running my own server right now.  I've finally got email working...kind of, but I've got the following issues.  In the following screen shot, (from Gmail) you'll notice two things that stick out as potential SPAMMER flags.  First is the little STOP SIGN icon with the question mark in it.  The second is the ... VIA P3P...blah attached to the end of my email address in the FROM section.  A third problem is that Gmail seems to think that my emails are Promotions.  I have attached the following screenshots for configuration assistance, as I'm sure I have something misconfigured somewhere.

Thank you!

if those are your settings, then you are not using gmail...     you have it set to use phpmail (which is done from your server)  To use gmail. you have to configure it using smtp.

The first wrong thing you said was the word GoDaddy but with the number of posts you have I'm sure you've read all that before.
Please do not PM me for support.

On a proper host, with some proper configuration, it's completely possible to use either PHP or SMTP to get a green light from Gmail. But the keywords are proper and proper, and this might mean Not-GoDaddy and some digging in to PHP configuration and DNS settings.

I am only using Gmail as how a member could possibly receive my emails.

You are using a gmail address as the sender address but the "via ..." part means it's being sent through your host's server using PHP rather than directly through gmail. If you want to send it through GMail instead then set up an app password (see https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185833?hl=en for more) and use the following settings in SMF:

Mail type: SMTP
SMTP server: ssl://smtp.gmail.com
SMTP port: 465
SMTP password: The app password you created
