Be Proactive About Tarpitting

After a grueling 48 hours of attempting to get back in Google’s good graces regarding email to their domain we are ‘on the way’ to being whitelisted.

The process was aggravating, frustrating, and in the end I learned an important lesson: Tarpitting is definitely something worth being proactive about. With more subscribers everyday there are a number of popular destination domains coming up on the list…

If nothing else, the last couple days has led to a couple valuable URLs to share. Each providers site has a lot of good advice on what you can do to get email to their users and all users in general. These URL’s are what you’ll want once you’re sure you conform to all their criteria and you’re ready to get on the whitelists:

Google (Gmail): http://www.rackaid.com/newsletter/20050906/page4.html

AOL: http://postmaster.info.aol.com/whitelist/whitelist_guides.html

Yahoo: http://add.yahoo.com/fast/help/us/mail/cgi_defer

MSN/Hotmail (not quite as straightforward): http://postmaster.msn.com/Services.aspx#SenderSolutions
