We Lost Our “App”!

By | General | No Comments

After 5 years we finally decided to secure the MailMonitor.com domain!  The “app” in MailMonitorApp.com has caused confusion more than a few times so we’re happy to simplify and save everyone a few key strokes.

We figured we might as well build a new site to celebrate.

Voila!  Let us know what you think!

P.S. For the time being our application site and API URLs will still continue to use the mailmonitorapp.com domain name.

Google Releases Postmaster Tools for Gmail

By | Tips and Resources | No Comments

Gmail has now added additional tools for senders.  Sign up is free to anyone at https://gmail.com/postmaster/ .  Domains need to be verified when the the account is created but Google will display spam rate when they have the data available.

This is a great sign for good acting senders who have traditionally felt Gmail was one of the tougher ISPs to troubleshoot when bulked or blocked due to a lack of data.

Region Specific Seed Lists Added to Deliverability Tracking

By | Email Delivery Tracking, Marketing Email Deliverability, Product Features | No Comments

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:

Region Specific Seed Lists

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.

SNDS Tracking and Automation

By | Email Delivery Tracking, Product Features | No Comments

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:

https://postmaster.live.com/snds/

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.
