Bulkmail service settings

I have the following issue, pretty sure is not new,

our marketing department is sending massive emails constantly that are affecting our corporate email. I am looking for a solution to use bulk mail with a third party company that allow us to send emails as mycompany.com with out using our servers and/or platform, without doing spoofing.

Is there any suggestions.

Please advise,

Nelson Leon

The problem you find with using external services are the reverse lookup most spam filters use. If an email comes from mycompany.com and the reverse lookup for that domain is 66.666.22.222, then my spam filter will not accept the email from constantcontact.com or anyone but the IP 66.666.22.222 because the reverse lookup does not match. Most outside services have to send from their domain but can customize the email address to look somewhat like you. If yor company name was Lucky.com They can send an email from Lucky@constantcontact.com, but if they send it from offer@mycompany.com the delivery rate will be horrible.
Most mass email programs have throttle settings to avoid killing the server. Ours lets the server pause for a number of seconds after a determined amount of emails out from the broadcast. Mass email is a sticky situation because even when you are following all of the rules and laws, you look like a spammer to most ISPs. For the cost of an outside servce, you may consider another email server that either load balances with your existing or is used for only broadcasts from a seperate IP.

I was thinking in doing that under a subdomian, like mktg.mycompny.com; that way if their fall into black lists it won't affect corporate. But I was hoping to find a third party solution to avoid deployment + administration.

I've done over 1 million bulk emails in the past year from one server w/everyday traffic using Active Campaign in house without getting booted off the net but it takes some careful policing.
A second IP/domain name and an in-house broadcast package, with safe sending procedures of course, is a safe way to go. I don't know if simply sub-domaining would work if you got blacklisted though. I think they would list the entire domain.

Maybe see if mktg_mycompny.com is available as a domain....
Looks the same but only to humans blacklisting would only affect the one domain.

Let me take a look at that!

We are not blacklisted, but with the amount of email we send, is a metter of time. We use mailsecure from pineapp as mail proxy.

Constant contact sends from alias@yourdomain.ccsend.com on behalf of alias@yourdomain.com.
You can set a reply address also.
We do not see bounce issues for the constant contact or customers exchange mail with this configuration.

Constant Contact has a 60 day trial.
They show you stats of percent bounced, percent opened, percent links clicked.

If you are sending lots of email you might find a Getresponse Enterprise setup a good affordable solution

It is effectively your own server running their software that they manage on your behalf
