Gmail shows a red question mark as profile photo for non-authenticated email senders:

The cause is that there is no SPF record on your domain's DNS Zone Editor.

For domains that are pointed to Hostinger by nameservers, SPF record is added by default. You can find it in your DNS Zone Editor by adding “spf” to search).

If the record is missing, or you are using external nameservers, you can add SPF record manually in both hPanel and cPanel.
