Cutting Through The Noise When Choosing An ESP

Picking an Email Service Provider is a mental tug of war: you’ll be working with that ESP a long time, and you want to make sure that the service is going to meet your needs perfectly. But there’s no avoiding the pressure from the business to figure it out ASAP. That app you’ve been working on is missing email capabilities and needed to deploy yesterday…or maybe that email server you’ve been using just can’t keep up with all the emails that need to go out every day.

Same API, New Tricks: Get Event Notifications Just In Time With Webhooks

So, I had a few thoughts while working on this update to the API – and maybe you’ve had them, too: Webhooks are great! Everyone should use them. Having the same data across similar APIs and JSON payload are a time saver.

Sending Email Using The Mailgun PHP API

It’s been a while since the Mailgun PHP SDK came around, and we’ve seen lots of changes: new functionalities, new integrations built on top, new API endpoints…yet the core of PHP is the same. Since it was the first SDK for the Mailgun API, it’s had time to mature and go through iterations that make it easy to use – which we realized when we gave it a try.

Protecting Your Domain Reputation With DMARC

As someone who works in this wonderful world of email, I can tell you there are a few things that just make life miserable for everyone: spammers and phishers. The interwebz is still the preferred platform for business and social interactions, so of course, there’s more incentive for bad actors to target users for their own financial gain. Let’s look at the stupid easy ways bad actors can lure us into a trap, and how we can stop getting pwned by spammers.

Explicit Consent And The GDPR

GDPR is real (and enforceable) to anyone that does business with EU residents, even if you’re halfway across the world. Time just flew by in all this prep work to become GDPR compliant, and no one had any fun – except for the data privacy experts. Those guys had all kinds of fun and an early Christmas. Everyone else had real talk and real confusion.

Protecting Your Deliverability With Honeypots

Dunno about you, but I find it oddly satisfying every time I flag a spammer and stop them in their tracks. It’s like I’m tag-teaming with ISPs to police the interwebz, fighting the good ol’ fight. And there’s a lot that ISPs can learn from in-house efforts to stop spammers, especially from traps like honeypots that are meant to ban spammers from your email servers. Honeypots are a sticky topic (pun intended) because there’s a lot of upside to using them. That’s good news for you, but bad news for the unsuspecting target.

Mailgun Launches Automated IP Warm Up Service

Today, we’re happy to share that there’s a new, automated way to prepare your dedicated IPs to send email through Mailgun. If you’ve ever had to warm up an IP manually, you know how much it sucks: prep then send specific volumes of email every hour and increase the volume thereafter. You’re an F-Zero pilot, constantly challenging your reflexes – and sweating bullets in the process – because you can hit the brake too late and go overboard. It’s a pain, and it’s also really easy to screw up.
