What is Blacklisting?
A blacklist is a list of IPs and domains, which are responsible for sending spams.
There are lots of monitoring services that keep track of email sending behavior widely known as Blacklists and they can list any IP and domain if they found any suspicious activities i.e. spam.
Many internet service providers check theses blacklisting records before accepting any emails, and they usually reject the emails if they found any listing.
How someone gets blacklisted?
- The sudden increase of large volume: A sender that is sending too many emails, an unusually large quantity of email can get blacklisted, if there is any sudden increase in email volume, without any warmup.
- Attachments: Attachments are mostly known as a popular carrier for malware, and sending them in your email campaigns can hurt you blacklisted if ISPs find any suspicious documents.
- Forwarding: When your server relays spam to another it looks like the spam originated from you, even though it not on purpose, still this can be considered as spam since the original server is sending spam to you.
- High spam complaints: If multiple users marked you as spam then it not only hurt your sender reputation but eventually gets you blacklisted.
