You have probably noticed that our sending service has an additional security. Indeed, the security of deliverability has been reinforced to avoid spam and IP reputation problems. If one of our users sends violent, pornographic, unethical or bulk content, our servers will be frowned upon and considered as spam for all email sendings. We have therefore implemented additional security to avoid being affected by such campaigns.
We can check/track the complaint and bounce rates per user which allows us to block you if you abuse, but we can’t change them directly. Depending on the volume of email, we have a different tolerance. If you are blocked, you will receive an informational email on your license address.
The IP reputation of our server is a crucial factor for the deliverability of your emails. In this article, we will explain why IP reputation is important, how it works and most importantly, how to improve it to increase the deliverability of your emails.
⭐ What is IP reputation and why is it important for email deliverability?
IP reputation is a measure of the trust that e-mail service providers have in your server’s IP address. It is based on various factors such as bounce rate, complaint rate, volume of messages sent and the quality of the e-mail addresses in your mailing list. A good IP reputation ensures that your emails arrive in your recipients’ inboxes and are not considered spam.
The higher your IP reputation, the more likely it is that your emails will reach your recipients’ inboxes.
🤔 How to check the IP reputation of your server?
There are several online tools to check the IP reputation of your server. The best known are SenderScore, MX Toolbox and BarracudaCentral.
