any guidelines to reach inbox instead of junk/spam
« on: August 17, 2018, 05:03:10 AM »

Hello Everyone,

we are in warm up phase of 50IPs. we have set rDNS, SPF, DKIM and DMARC Correctly. we are following proper warm-up schdule, but still for major ESPs like
outlook, gmail, yahoo and aol messages are going to junk/spam.

Is there any guidelines to follow to make our messages reach to inbox instead fo junk/spam?
or we have to manually mark them not spam in our spam folder and move them to inbox?

What do you mean by:
we are following proper warm-up schdule

In general if a mail is dropping into a junk or spambox it is a content issue.

If we are warming up a IP we beginning with max 2 each day to ESP's. Then each week we add 2 more.
For Gmail and hotmail we have 100 mails each day and each week we double this number (so 100 -> 200 -> 400)
Yahoo starts with 100 and every week we add 100 to this number.

Also it is important to add a ' backoff-reroute-to-virtual-mta' to a warm IP.

Maybe information you already know but just in case  :)
