TLS Version 1.0 and 1.1 Deprecation

Since Mailgun’s early days, we’ve made a point to ensure that our senders could send their emails as securely as possible. When we announced TLS support in 2014, we did this with the customer in mind, and we continue to do so now as we move to deprecate TLS 1.0 and 1.1 in favor of the more secure TLS version 1.2.

How To Promote Strategic Engagement In Your Email Program

The word “engagement” can mean a lot of things. It may be a fancy word you use to spice up various dental and doctor’s appointments. It may mean you’re about to get married (hey, congratulations! Time to celebrate). 💍When it comes to email, however, “engagement” generally means one thing: how your recipients are responding to your messages. And you hope they’re not responding like Ron Swanson.

How To Improve Email Click-Through Rates

We all know that the internet provides the things we want and need with just a few clicks of a button. How many times have you seen ads that promise products, services, and huge “you’re our millionth visitor” prizes that are just one click away? Okay, we’re not saying that you should actually click on those ads—in fact, it’s probably best if you don’t. But the presence and capabilities of these ads does highlight an important concept in email marketing… click-through rates.

How To Avoid Emails Going To Spam

No matter how many stars we wish on, some questions will never have simple answers — including email. One of the biggest problems for any email provider is how to avoid emails going to spam.

The Basics of SPF Records

What do you think of when you think of the term SPF? If you’re new to email, it probably makes you think of sunblock (it’s June, so we should probably put some on). But, as it turns out, there’s another type of SPF protection that’s a little more relevant to the email industry: SPF records.

Dedicated vs Shared IPs: Which One Should You Use?

Ah, IP addresses. We’ve all heard of them, had them, and seen technically questionable movies where actors punch random keys on a computer and say stuff like, “They’re hacking our IP to access the mainframe!” Hollywood magic at its finest. But, as ubiquitous as they may seem, it can be difficult to know which kind of IP is right for you. These IP types are referred to as dedicated IPs and shared IPs, and each type has specific benefits. We’ll get you up to speed on dedicated versus shared IPs, and ensure that you know exactly how they can help you send messages, manage your domain reputation, and maybe even access a mainframe of your very own.
