    Hi,

    I am wondering what is involved in setting up my server to allow client to sent bulk emails i.e. 1000++ p/h without getting my IP and server banned?

    thanks heaps in advance :)

    Bulk e-mails on their own will not cause blacklisting - sending unsolicited mail will however and you will not prevent blacklisting if that is what your client is doing. Make sure they are using a double opt-in list and there shouldn't be any problems.

    thanks for you reply... I am wondering how then do I offer my clients a bulk mail server with a 'double opt in' software app?... do you know some credible apps that can do it?

    How do companies like MailChimp do it?

    thanks

    Any mail server can get blacklisted given sufficient reports. Basically, if your clients are sending legitimate requested messages then you shouldn't have any problems, however if it's unsolicited then personally I'd drop them as it's not worth the hassle of trying to avoid blacklisting and if you are, you're basically encouraging spam mail.

    so a good strategy would be to only allow bulk mail services via a software package that we chose that has the double opt in feature.

    It would also be the best if the bulk mail server was on a separate IP and subdomain to my other clients !

    any other ideas from anyone?

    Most decent mailing list packages support double opt-in as it's one of the easiest methods to ensure that a recipient genuinely wants to receive mailings - phplist is an example of this. What sort of mailings is your customer trying to perform though? Are they genuine mailings or marketing?
