Hi there,
We are trying to find a solution that will avoid our emails ending up in users spam folder. I was wondering if there is any service that will let you send emails through once you confirm your company details showig that you are not spammer but a serious company?
for example, dotMailer service (email marketing) emails always end up in users inbox.But you need their system to create email templates. which is not convenient if you want to send emails like registration emails etc.

Thanks
B

PS: We are not looking for any free services. It might be a paid service as well.

Are you talking about individual filters or public spamlists/blacklists?

Spam filters are based on whatever rules the company applies, if your email address is set to automatically go into their spam filter, there's nothing you can do about it.

If the spam filter is based upon a list of 'search terms' (eg. viagra, cialis etc.) then you can try to avoid the filter by avoiding those key search phrases.

Also, if you can contact someone at the company you're sending mail to, you can always ask to be added to their whitelist.

Then I suggest avoiding using the most commonly used spam search terms.

You can probably google that list pretty easily, it's bound to be very large.

You need to use a Mailing Service (such as inconstantcontact (spelling?) that I as a user can whitelist with assurance, and you as a vendor can send through the service. That way, I as a user can allow your mail in and exclude others, because inconstantcontact individualizes the permissions by recipient. This is a good service because 9 out of 10 emailers fall into the trap of ever increasing emails. I usually wind up unsubscribing from you. But it is all done with one email service, so I don't have to alter my whitelist. .... Thinkpads_User
