What sender score and IP reputation is really worth to your mail server

Feb 19, 2010 by Paul White

Most webmasters and server admins are relatively clueless as to what makes email really run.  Recently I was forced to migrate all my websites to new IPs.  I knew I was going to take a hit for this but I didn't realize how much.  This whole experience have given me a new perspective on how to get into yahoo's inbox with your bulk emails and newsletters.

Class C IP RBL blacklist not cool

Dec 5, 2009 by Paul White

Today I went through getting one of my new clients setup on the Feedback Loop with the major ISPs.  Most of the them came back saying I was approved to their feedback loop system, but one of them said I was not approved because I was found on an blacklist.  This is not something you want to see.  Allow me to explain.

Click read to see the bench marks.

Why you should buy a server and Colocate

Oct 26, 2009 by Paul White

For years I setup my clients with shared hosting account with either HostMySite ( Hosting.com ) or Godaddy.  I stayed clear of colocating for several reasons, cost, and what if it breaks.  Well I finally got the confidence to colocate my own rack server, and I will say its one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Sending our Jobs to India but not our datacenters or servers

Sep 13, 2009 by Paul White

Today as I was working on my blog, I noticed a google ad that was advertising Colocation and Dedicated Servers.  I just happen to be in the market for such products, so naturally I clicked the ad to learn more.  What I found made ma laugh.  Its obvious that the managers of the datacenter, don't have a clue when it comes to IT.
