Email blacklist – Threat to your email deliverability
A blacklist is a list of addresses and domain names that various organisations have decided to block due to spam, malware or other configuration issues on the email server. Even if email servers are configured properly, your email maybe rejected by your clients, partners and other organisations because you are listed on a blacklist.
There a number of reasons why your email services could be blacklisted, some of them could be malware attacks that have spent an unusually large amount of emails. A bad email server configuration that forwards spam or an email marketing campaign that has been reported as spam.
Getting unlisted from a blacklist can be challenging and sometimes difficult. First you need to make sure that your email servers are in good working order and properly configured. All end user desktops and laptops need to be free from malware, Trojans and other viruses. Once all issues have been rectified you will need to get delisted from any blacklist that you are on. This involves contacting 100s of blacklist providers to your email servers delisted.
