    DMARC - Home –

    Large email service providers can use hundreds/thousands of checks when determining if they should accept an email, and if they do accept, how it should be delivered.

    The sender score of the senders outgoing IP address is a nice report card and place to start when working on reputation issues.

    I don't believe these are related, except for maybe that POP3 users won't get emails delivered to the spam folder (outside the inbox) unless they login to webmail and look for them.

    This information is not published. There is some speculation around which blacklists matter more in their decision making process.

    I'd worry more about the sender score mentioned above, and What all Email Marketers need to Know about Gmail

    In general, clicks matter more than opens, and other positive actions can be good too.

    I see red and yellow banners in my spam folder. It appears that common spam had been demoted to yellow, and red is for phishing scams and other attempts to steal critical account information.

    Send good email to recipients that want the email, from a dedicated IP that is only sending that type of email, and you'll be off to a good start. Mixing types of email, quality of email, and sharing with other senders will cause problems.

    See above about sending good email only to recipients that want to get the email.

    Don't buy lists. Don't send to email addresses that have not taken a positive action in more than 6 months.

    These changes are real time. If you are a problem, they'll know fast, and if you're a good sender with a temporary problem they'll usually figure it out within a couple days.

    It can take a few days since not all users read their email in real time, so it might take a few days for spam complaints and other problems to stop after the source of the problem has been fixed.

    Don't add email to your lists unless it's been double confirmed.

    This is old but still has some good tips - Top 10 Email Marketing Tips

    If you're having a problem with bad email lists, you can start over with a reputable email newsletter service such as MailChimp to correct the problems.

    If you need a database to clean your list, you're already in big trouble.

    The article mentioned above mentions such a service if you really want to try one - What all Email Marketers need to Know about Gmail

    No hacks needed, sending good email to those that want it is all you need to do.

    I wouldn't send too much email too fast from a new IP address. If you have an established IP address with a great sender score there isn't a limit on the volume of good email that you can send.

    Most 3rd Party Services, that validate yahoo domains will always return "Valid", because yahoo SMTP Validation tests always returns a valid result. A few validation services have figured out a tricky way to validate yahoo addresses that doesn't involved SMTP validation. But even with the trick you get limited to about 100 validations a day per IP. You can try your luck with my Single Email Validator, but since it's a heavily used service, a lot of times you will get an unable to validate result - because my limitation was reached.

    Gmail doesn't use public blacklists, they have their own internal filtering system. I spoke with a few of the google engineers and they have different layers of filtering based on reputation.

    Spam traps are normally called "Catch-all" domains - basically meaning - every address you SMTP validate return a positive results (When you see this pattern you stay away from those email addresses) - Email verification systems - can normally figure out which domains are spam traps because they have the data to figure it out.
