We have added Rogers.com, a large Canadian ISP, to our seed list and deliverability tracking reports. Also, due to a cable company acquisition, our Optimum seeds are now Charter addresses. All additions can be downloaded within your Mail Monitor account.

We are very pleased to announce a new partnership with SuretyMail.

After several requests we have added some additional blacklist checks to our blacklist monitoring service. The following are now included in the daily:
- UCE Level 1
Different marketers often need to look at different sets of deliverability data depending on the client location and list ISP distribution. Up until now, each Mail Monitor report would display every ISP available for tracking. This is not always ideal and many of you have requested more control over your reports.
We’re happy to announce that each Mail Monitor account now comes with the ability to specify the region or regions to be tracked. To choose regions, simply check or uncheck checkboxes next the the regions on the setup page. Here is a peek at the changes to the setup page:
When adjusting regions, there are a couple of things to keep in mind:
- When adding regions, make sure to download the seed list again and add it to the outgoing distribution list
- Campaign reports are updated for a 72 hour period after first received. If removing regions, reports sent within the last 72 hours can be inacurate for the removed regions.
Microsoft provides a fantastic amount of data through their SNDS program (Smart Network Data Services) that can help marketers responsibly monitor their sending reputation to Hotmail / Outlook.com email addresses. That should include just about everyone sending email. The data is free and any sender that uses a dedicated IP can sign up at:
Performance and Enterprise Mail Monitor accounts now include the ability to automate and collect that data for review. All that is required is to have an SNDS account set up that is already tracking IP data. The Reputation tab of qualified Mail Monitor accounts walk you through the rest. This is a great tool for troubleshooting and monitoring delivery to Outlook.com and Hotmail.
