I used to work for a bulk mail sender and I created one of his mass mail sender. As you pointed, is not a option to use a mail marketing provider, the answer to you question is build your own. As I suppose, you will be sending email only from your domain, and not for any third party, it will be a lot more complicated. To build your own mail marketing you ...

I doubt you can, because if you can, so can spammers. I suggest you get your other points as low as you possibly can, the following should help you get a lot further: Set an SPF record Create a DKIM record Configure your script to send via SMTP Make sure you have 100% valid html Test your mail via AllAboutSpam Try submitting to dnswl Check the SpamAssassin ...

After long time I have found the problem. And the problem is... Gmail. Gmail was incorrectly parsing the SPF record. The record itself was correct and it was validating correctly in ie. mxtoolbox. It was also validating correctly in Gmail (yeah, look at the listings in first post about validation results). However, checking it with Google's MX checker ...

At least in my case, I kept all the bureaucracy to make my chances to reach an inbox safer. From top of my mind: Make sure you use a custom domain address (blah-blah@yourdomain.com). Using a generic, public accessible domain (think of gmail, outlook, yahoo) is not a good idea, since you can't control it, and other providers don't like (and tolerate) emails ...

Well, this is risky but the best thing you can do is make yourself look as un-spammy as possible. Following the Can Spam Act guidelines is a good place to start: Unsubscribe compliance A visible and operable unsubscribe mechanism is present in all emails. Consumer opt-out requests are honored within 10 business days. [7] Opt-out lists also ...

No, in the United States and Europe, you can never use a messaging system to automatically opt-in people who haven't opted in without any worries. Yes you can do it, but not worry free. A customer making a purchase isn't enough to absolve you from having to follow laws like CAN-SPAM and Europe's E-Privacy Directive. You may be able to get away with it, if ...

Edit: Check also @Steve answer for important additional information Based in cpanel documentation, it says this: Restrictions Use this feature to allow or suspend a user's ability to log in, receive mail, or send mail. You can also hold outgoing mail. Select Allow, Suspend, or Hold for the applicable setting. Notes: When you suspend an email account, the ...

I'm going to break your question into two parts: Where can I send test email? Send test email to a disposable email address service. [1] These services automatically create an inbox for any email you send to them. You can then read the messages in the inbox through their web site, without registration and without a password. For example, I can send an ...

Is the sending email address in the contact lists of your Yahoo and Gmail receiving accounts? This might avoid the spam treatment.

Have you tried Amazon Simple Email Services http://aws.amazon.com/ses/ it's definately a cost effective solution, although I'm not sure how easy it will be to send to 300k of recipeints.


2

Its a bad business move, and you could still sue them. If you reply to that email and they don't honor your request to be removed, and keep emailing you, then they are in dangerous waters. The danger is that they are continuing to contact you after you requested removal. It will be hard for them to prove that you didn't try to call that number and the ...

The actual resolution came down to changing my DNS manager. The original cpanel to manage DNS provided by nativespace.com was not working for whatever reason. After I switched my DNS manager to godaddy.com and reconfigured MX records, the email started working. I upvoted answer provided by @Vhortex for his suggestion on using http://mxtoolbox.com which ...

Contact Mail Chimp.. There are a lot of reasons why email are not being received and the top 1 is that the email was rejected. Gmail will reject most emails when the sender IP have no Reverse DNS information (example IP 1.2.3.4 must have a corresponding 4.3.2.1.xxxx.xx) Mails will also be rejected if the IP or reverse IP have no matching host answering ...

Looks like someone is spoofing your ourmailer@gmail.com address. This line shows a spam relay server: Diagnostic-Code: smtp;554 resimta-ch2-11v.sys.comcast.net comcast 23.227.123.207 found on one or more DNSBLs, see http://postmaster.comcast.net/smtp-error-codes.php#BL000010 This line shows that the original e-mail lacked an rfc822 message ID: Message-Id:...

Return-Path: <> This is what is causing the problem. It seems some of headers are ill configured. The missing Reply-To header is also a serious downfall for mail being masked as spam.

There are two schools of thought on this and for the sake of openess I will discuss both. Run Your Own SMTP Server By running your own SMTP server for sending these emails you will not have any issues with being banned for a high bounce rate or being limited to a certain number of emails each month. The downside of this is that it is easy to wind up with ...

You should post your message on the Amazon SES forum because the issue comes from Amazon SES IPs being blacklisted not you! Check your post above and you will see that the Amazon IP your email was sent from is still blacklisted on ZapBL for example: https://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=blacklist%3a54.240.7.12&run=toolpage

There are a variety of data sources used by RBLS's to identify potential spam sources... Honeypots - In these instances fake email addresses are created and posted in order to receive spam emails. When spam emails are received then the sender is added to blacklists. Spam Filters - Many spam filters provide regular feeds to blacklist providers based on ...

(NB: Since I haven't gotten any answers to my question, I'll try to answer it myself -- though based only on my own experience. If others have more knowledge/more experience, I'd still love to hear your thoughts and thus I'm leaving this question 'unanswered'.) We've been sending emails via the AWS SendBulkTemplatedEmail action for several months now, which ...

The answer to this is it depends - on the hosting settings. In the cPanel documentation at https://docs.cpanel.net/knowledge-base/email/how-to-set-email-send-limits/ it states After the system reaches a limit, it does not block additional messages at SMTP time. Instead, the system accepts and then handles additional messages per the value of the The ...

The avatar is powered both through the recipients own address book as well as through Google+ This works by making sure your Google+ email and domain name match the sender email address that the gmail recipient sees and that you have a default avatar defined for your Google+ profile. When this is done then you should see that the avatar is in the recipients ...

You need a "transactional" mail service that is meant for one-to-one communication with users. You would then use it more like a a bulk mail service, but with customization of each message. I use Amazon SES for this purpose. The API for using it is SMTP. You can customize each message as much as you want. The mail gets sets from Amazon's servers and ...

From the testing I have done from my end, I generally have the following results: Bounce backs always comeback to the "from" email if a "reply-to" is not configured. Human responses always comeback to the "reply-to" address unless the user chooses to reply to the "original-sender" Notes: Receiving bounceback emails always depend on your ...

One server needs to be configured to receive the emails for your domain. It sounds like you are choosing Google for this. To make this happen you need to change your DNS MX records to the values that Google gives you when you sign up for their system. You need to then configure it so multiple servers can send mail on behalf of your domain. ...

I will give you as an answer the obvious one that applies for all e-mails from/to same sender/receiver that you do not want to be displayed as a thread (conversation) and you want each one of them to be displayed individually (in case you have not already set it up): Open Gmail page > Click at the Gear icon > Settings > Conversation View > Set it to "Off"

I have had this problem for three years. Gmailers tell me they do not get my emails. I don't get them to my Gmail account. But I just looked in "All" and it was there.

You will need to be careful doing something like this as it would technically be classified as spamming as well and can result not just in the box in question being blacklisted byt potentially the entire IP block and even if the entire IP block isn't blacklisted you will find that it is against your providers terms of service. In addition you could ...

The reputation of the Email sender depends on "example.com" the domain and not for the email address "xxx@example.com". Hence you can easily make this shift without any deliverability issues. As Its the Domain that matters.

Here is a page that lists many hosting companies and their mail sending limits. Host: GoDaddy Limitations: 250 per day on regular hosting, 1000 on dedicated/virtual servers Your Frequency: 5 emails / 30 minutes, 40 emails / 1 hour (if you have more than 1000 subscribers) For GoDaddy's own SMTP: Server : relay-hosting.secureserver.net ...

I have used MadMimi (https://madmimi.com/short_ref/z7X) for about 5 years for my ecommerce businesses and clients businesses as well. I've been happy with their service and pricing tiers are much more reasonable than the other services like MailChimp. I use the "Custom HTML" email option, I do not use their email builder tool. This allows me to have full-...
