However, email blasts gone wrong will land in spam folders faster than a fake foreign prince can offer you his inheritance money. How exactly should you go about sending an email blast? We’ll show you the best (and worst) practices for mass email sending.

2018 Deliverability Year In Review – Mailgun Festivus Miracles

Festivus is fast upon us, in fact, it’s in a few days. We’ve taken the time to air our grievances over Black Friday emails and how Yahoo and AOL slowed down sending this year, but we still haven’t quite found our miracle yet. We aren’t entirely sure we’ll find one, but there is something to be said about a thoughtful reflection on the past year. Some things changed, a lot of things didn’t, but everything that did and didn’t happen have everything to do with your deliverability.

Ignored Emails Have A Low Sending Self-Esteem

Email is a wonderful medium for sending and receiving messages, but we don’t give it enough credit. Lack of credit can lead to emails being taken for granted, leaving them unclicked and unloved. Unloved emails become insecure, and that insecurity leads to poor sending habits. Before they reach rock bottom, they need to work on their Sending Self-Esteem.

Reverse DNS White Labeling — Hello, My Name Is…

DNS is about as old as the internet itself, and it’s easy to understand why. Domain names are way easier to memorize and remember than IP addresses, so DNS records were bound to catch on as more and more people started using the internet. Could you imagine remembering each IP address of the sites you wish to visit? That’d be a handful.
