    Hi there I have a stock newsletter website that has amassed around 20,000 subscribers over the last 5 years. around 50% of which is gmail. I am having serious trouble getting my emails into inboxs with gmail. I am using interspire as my middleware for newsletter management. I think i am able to get into yahoo and small ips but I think I need help cracking gmail. If you are experienced with this and with blasting to email dbs around 5k-50k as quickly as possible (its a stock picking service so its important delivery is fast so all members have a chance to buy stock without a time advantage over other members)

    if you think you can help fire me a message thanks

    Hi 22justin,

    There are are starting tips on this page and the page it links to - What all Email Marketers need to Know about Gmail

    I recommend checking there and discussions like this one - Hotmail accepting but not delivering mail from my mail servers despite high Sender Score

    If you're not getting rejected, there may be technical reasons your email is getting delivered to the spam folder, or maybe it's simply that the subscribers are marking you as spam (or doing nothing) instead of positive actions such as clicking links in your newsletters.

    thanks. I should probably scrub my gmail and yahoo lists as they are a couple years old now but xverify is pretty expensive.... any other cheaper options for scrubbing?

    Remove any addresses that fail when you send, and remove any addresses that have not taken an action with your email in over 6 months.

    If you send to a subscriber and they do "nothing", such as left unread or delete, that's shifting to be more of a bad thing than a good thing.
