You have no idea how important it is to have a good email reputation. Messages you send to each other, your clients, and your vendors may not be making it to the inbox. If you aren’t checking your email health on a weekly basis , then you really can’t tell how reliable your mail is working. There simply aren’t any great metrics tools out there to monitor tell you when someone whom emailed you has a poisoned the well — at least there wasn’t UNTIL NOW !
Email score sites fail
There are plenty of tools out there to check your IP or Domain but these tools offer far too little information and many make your pay to really find out what is going on behind the scenes. It isn’t enough to get a general email reputation snapshot when your really need to know exactly what is wrong at the inbox or on your server and to fix it. This becomes an absolute nightmare if you are using a free email from AOL, Yahoo!, SBCglobal, because they don’t offer real support.
We recommend that if you are professional email user, then you switch away from using free (Advertising based) web mail clients like that and get something solid and secure based your company name.
Reputation re-enforced by a clean record
What kind of record? Secure records of course! SPF, DKIM, DMARC email records to be exact. Did you know that they even exist? Chances are that if you are using a free Yahoo! account you have no clue what I’m talking about.
- What is SPF
Sender Policy Framework (SPF) SPF dictates which mail servers are authorized to send mail on your behalf (restricting who can send emails from your domain). (No spoofing your email)
- What is DKIM
DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) ensures that the content of your emails remains trusted and hasn’t been tampered with or compromised. DKIM signatures also prove that the server that sent it was specifically authorized to do so.
- What is DMARC
Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) ties the first two items above together with a consistent set of rules.
Combined – these awesome powers (security) protect you from the evil-email-hackers who are prowling around and looking to infiltrate your inbox.
