Help with SPF and mail delivery

Veteran WHTer microvax is having difficulty delivering mail to Gmail from a new VPS, and is asking for help setting up SPF and whatever else is needed to convince Gmail that his mail isn't spam. There are several more steps to go through to ensure smooth mail delivery, not just to Gmail, including checking your IP isn't blacklisted, setting up reverse-DNS, DKIM, DMARC, etc. So do you have a standard checklist that you use when setting up new servers or IPs that you've found the most successful? What other challenges should we be looking out for? And can monitoring tools help with checking ongoing delivery success?

Price of .COMs about to increase, what about other TLDs?

With the wholesale price of .COMs set to increase from 1st September, as previously posted on WHT, there's an increase in interest in other TLDs and, of course, where the best place is to buy them. So, for those of us who collect domains, or simply have a large portfolio, will the price increase influence your choices? Will you move away from .COMs? Are you one of the domainers renewing domains early, for multiple years, to get ahead of the increase? Is .COM still the standard or are you finding that other extensions perform just as well in searches and for traffic?
