If you run a mail server, and do any kind of bulk emails, you need to sign up with the feedback loops to ensure you keep your mail list clean, and keep your IP reputation in good standing. I have put together a complete list of all known feedback loops. I also include some background information on each Feedback Loop. I know this might seem like a pain in the ASS, but its worth it.
Everytime I setup a new website that will be blasting to their mail list, I first create an abuse email address with their domain, I then alias this address to my email. Then I go through all the feedback loops below and get them signed up. I have found that if you want your clients to keep their lists clean you will have to be the one who removes the bounces and feedback loop notifications. If you leave it in their hands it won't happen. They will put it off, or ignore it, until finally they have ruined the reputation of their mail server's IP. Since my success is based on their success which drives referrals and good clients, its important to keep their IP reputation clean.
Separate from the Feedback Loops I highly recommend every checkout Return Path's SenderScore.org. This will give you a quick overview of how your mail server is doing.
I wish that ReturnPath would setup some kind of universal FBL form. But instead you have to get through every website to get the form setup. The worst part is if you ever move to a new IP with your mail server you will need to shutdown all the old FBL requests, and then reapply with the new IP. I just recently moved my server to a new Datacenter. Its going to take me at least a few days to get all the FBL stuff updated.

|They have a Postmaster Tools system so you can track your reputation with Gmail's Servers. Unfortunately their Feedback Loop is restricted to only High volume ESPs|
Requires you have a Yahoo Account for Signup, and your mail server must support DomainKeys, then you can apply here
First you will need to login to your Microsoft account here. Anyone with Windows 10 will be pretty familar with this. https://account.microsoft.com/about
Then you can apply to their Smart Network Data Service https://postmaster.live.com/snds
Once confirmed, you can then apply to their Junk Mail Reporting Program https://postmaster.live.com/snds/JMRP.aspx
After applying they will email you a docusign contract to join the program, once signed you are approved.
Warning, a long time ago comcast used to require a senderscore of over 60 to be approved to their FBL. Not sure if they stilll enforce this, but if they do new IPs might have to wait a good month before applying to their program.
Pain in the ASS signup form.
