My email was blacklisted. Here are some of the reasons given for that happening.
In general, the reasons can be one of the following (but can also be added with no reason given in some cases, we are just not provided the reason):
- recipient: user unknown
- domain: invalid domain
- domain: no mail host
- system: connection issue
- recipient: quota exceeded
- spam: content blocked
- per customer request (in this case, someone has sent our support desk an email asking to be added to the blacklist, i.e. they do not want to receive any mails ever)
- Customer has used the Opt-Out link (or anyone they have forwarded the message on to)
Here is the solution from webflow to avoid the blacklist in the future. I’m going to look into this a little more when I have some time.
I would suggest the following steps:
I would suggest that to ensure a higher degree of mail deliverability, to look into using our built in Zapier integration to do a couple of things:
a) Send form submissions to Google Sheets via Zapier to save the forms in sheet format that can be viewed by the customer
b) Use the built in Zapier integration to send the submissions through GMAIL to the target email address. Sometimes this is a better method as you would be bypassing the bulk-mailer and using Google to send the mail which usually results in high delivery rates.
They were quite helpful!
