It would be awesome if YAMM could...

Avoid spam filters

A lot of mail merges are starting to get caught by spam filters. It would be great if YAMM automatically spaced emails out by 5 to 20 seconds (at random). It would take longer to get through the 100 emails, but at least more would end up in recipient's inboxes.

While you're at it, you could have YAMM automatically pause when it hit the 100 limit until 24 hours had passed, and then automatically continue down the list.

Thanks!

    Hi,

    Please ask your IT department to properly set up the SPF records for your domain, otherwise there’s a high chance to get caught by spam filters.

    eg on domain carbonlighthouse.com, there are some issues:

    Please follow this documentation from Google to set up everything properly:

        I have just reported as spam underpricedhost-dot-yamm-track.appspot.com AGAIN. Because so far Google did not shutdown this spammers shit hole service I have blacklisted and spam auto reporting all mails containing 'yamm' words in headers and body. If spam attacks will not cease and desist then 'appspot.com' also will be blacklisted and reported forever. Thanks to your underpricedhost customer with stolen email addresses google mail servers are listed on RBL lists.

        Related to this documentation, can anyone point me to some documentation on how gmail and other email providers do spam filtering? We are sending 200 daily via mail merge and want to make sure our spam scores are not affected.

        Great Idea!!
        Spam works with probabilty. The Higher is the frequency to send email, the higher the probability to be flagged as a spammer is.

        Yes we need to be able to control how much time there is between messages in a mail merge. Gmail is now flagging messages as spam if you just send out 100 too fast.
