Don't bother getting that IP off those lists. Too much effort, outcome uncertain, and no guarantee for the future. How much mail do you send? Is that hundreds of mails per months, or tens of thousands? If it's not more than hundreds, use the mailserver of your ISP - your home cable account. Or rent another cheap mail account like mailbox.org for 1 euro per ...

I'm going to guess you're going to need more than an email address in the future from several guests. What I would suggest then is to create a separate registration page where users can enter their email address and password to register for an account on the site then later users can change their preferences as to what can be mailed to them and they can ...

Google requires that any content that it indexes be available to searchers under their first click free policy. You may require that users give you their email address, but only after allowing them to view one page of content hassle free when coming from a Google search.

In my honest opinion, that would be a very aggressive way to collect user emails and won't even serve the purpose you're looking for in the long run (they would temporarily feed in the email to access the content but later unsubscribe) Such overlays are also bad for ultimate UX since it's nothing short of forcing people to part their emails to read your ...

Have you verified info@companyname.com actually exists by sending email from domain@domain.com using a browser or client? You can verify DNS settings in the google apps admin dashboard. If the mx records are not set up correctly then you will need to fix that issue first. If email does exist, then the best way (maybe not the easiest way) I have found to ...

I had the same problem. I called Godaddy support and it sucks, so you need to access MX Entry in cPanel and configure it to remote MX if your email server is outside godaddy. Remember that you have to send emails from PHP trought your own domain. You need to specify a mx record in order to send the emails, it works for me with a delay of 10 minutes.

I wouldn't recommend hosting your own email. It can be a lot of work. Other options would be signing up for email hosting at a place like Rackspace, at only $2/month, or a dedicated email host at somewhere like FastMail, which starts at $10/year.

I don't know anything about Amazon SES but you can run your own email server on VPS, typically. Unix/BSD/Linux come with it built-in or easily installed. So the question would be, are you running Unix/BSD/Linux? Does Amazon not let you use the email ports? Are you willing to learn how to set up, configure and manage an email server?

We've tried PHP's mail() function and also the PHPMailer SMTP library, but are experiencing delays with both. We're working on a web service, and our registration confirmation emails are constantly delayed almost 5-10 mins on GoDaddy's servers. First, determine if any of the third-party software is the culprit. Maybe your PHP script runs slowly to the ...

Unfortunately there isn't much more you can do other than wait. If you have been listed on 4 different blacklists, your issues won't be just with Microsoft servers, though those are the only ones you're concerned about at this time. Sendgrid will need to go through the motions to have you removed from the blacklists. I have encountered issues before where ...

Unfortunately e-mail delays and other issues like this are common with GoDaddy - and as far as I'm aware, using an SMTP library to an external SMTP server won't work at all as GoDaddy will block it. The best you can do is contact GoDaddy support and ask if there is a problem on the server you are on, but I'd hazard a guess that there's not going to be much ...

You need to add the MX record to your domain first - go to your domain's DNS records (wherever these are managed), and add an MX record for your subdomain to point its mail to inbound.postmarkapp.com with a priority of 10. For example: sub.john-john.com MX inbound.postmarkapp.com 10 In Postmark's documentation, inbound.postmarkapp.com isn't just an ...

Tim is correct. You will need to point a subdomain on your domain to inbound.postmarkapp.com, using an MX record. So, inbound.yourdomain.com will have an MX record of inbound.postmarkapp.com with a priority of 10. Then, when verified in Postmark, you can send emails to anything@inbound.yourdomain.com.
