Google and Yahoo Bulk Sender Requirements

In light of recent announcements by Google and Yahoo, it has become mandatory for bulk email senders to implement various requirements in place to reduce spam (read more on our blog). Our account setup process ensures that you are compliant with these requirements by configuring SPF, DKIM, DMARC correctly.

Moreover, it's essential to ensure that your emails support an easy, one-click unsubscribe process for end-users. This includes incorporating a clearly visible unsubscribe link within the body of your messages and providing unsubscribe end-points in the email header. NotificationAPI fully supports these functionalities, adhering to the standards set forth by RFC 2369 and RFC 8058. Our system automatically includes the necessary header and an unsubscribe footer in your outgoing messages, providing your recipients with a straightforward method to opt-out of future communications.

Imagine having your own email team:

Our team monitors bounces and complaints and will reach out to you directly if we detect an alarming rate of such emails. You can also reach out to us any time to ask about best practices, to review your email content, or to help you troubleshoot a delivery issue.

For paying customers, we help transfer your existing email templates into our editor, and we can also help you build new ones.
