discussion Bounce Classification Code Change

There is a bounce reply that we see frequently from Office 365(tm) hosted domains that looks like this one: "550 5.4.1 [xxxxxx@yyyyyy.zzz]: Recipient address rejected: Access denied ...". We have historically believed this bounce reply to mean that the intended recipient of the message had configured some kind of personal filtering to reject messages from a sender; because of this belief, we have always classified this response with code 50, meaning that it’s a block bounce. Such a classification has [...] [more]

discussion Legitimate vs Spam Messages: Breaking Down Microsoft’s Rating System

Our deliverability expert breaks down what Microsoft's SCL, BCL, and PCL ratings mean when sending messages to one of their domains.

discussion Initial Renders Metric for Better Engagement Tracking

A consequence of this approach is the possibility of underreporting engagement because some mailbox providers—notably Gmail—truncate message content that they consider too long. This means a recipient may open and read part of the content, but the open pixel would not render and would therefore not record the open. To help our customers get a more accurate picture of who is opening and reading their email, we’re adding an additional open pixel at the top of the message. It drives a new metric labeled [...] [more]

tactics Triggered Email Secrets Every Sender Should Know [GFX]

I have a secret: a few days ago, my lunch pretty much consisted of a stop at a hip ice cream shop to enjoy a cone with a scoop of my favorite flavor: “Secret Breakfast,” which mixes bourbon-flavored caramel and corn flakes in a sweet cream base. First of all, yum. But it also reminded me how important creativity and surprise can be as marketing tools. Every scoop shop offers bread-and-butter flavors like chocolate and vanilla, but it’s the other buzz-worthy varieties that define their brands. (And [...] [more]

tactics The Developer’s Survival Guide to Email [PDF]

Email can be a pretty strange beast with conventions, dependencies, and quirks unlike anything else, and many of us have a love/hate relationship with making it work. We love email because it ’s ubiquitous, open, flexible, and effective; we hate—or perhaps have learned to treat it with a wary respect—because getting an email from point A to inbox B has so many variables outside our control. In short, it’ s easy to feel like “I Knew How Email Worked Until I Started to Build an App that Sends Email.” [...] [more]
