Increase Email Deliverability by Improving Your Reputation

“Email reputation” or sender reputation is an important factor mailbox providers (mail servers) such as Google’s Gmail, Microsoft Outlook, or Yahoo Mail, use to score the credibility of your organization as an email sender. Each mailbox provider has its own complex algorithm that tracks and updates your sender reputation, which is based on both your domain and your IP address (IP). Email reputation services exist to help you track and optimize your email reputation to optimize email deliverability.
