Reputation Monitor

83% of email delivery failures are caused by reputation problems

Sender reputation remains the most important factor mailbox providers use to determine which emails make it into a subscriber’s mailbox. Simply put, email marketers with exceptional reputations consistently reach their targets–everyone else struggles. If your IP has a poor reputation, your mail is less likely to reach the inbox, risking the chance that your subscribers may never even see your message.

So how do you know what your reputation is? Reputation Monitor removes the mystery by revealing how mailbox providers rate you as a sender using Sender Score–like a credit score for email reputation–along with corrective advice to improve that score.

See it in Action

With Reputation Monitor, you’re able to dive even deeper by exploring metrics from your own IP address. We’ll show you what mailbox providers are using to evaluate your email program including mailing to addresses that don’t exist, complaints, spam traps, blacklists, and more.
