Today 1and1Mail announced a major upgrade of its email marketing software for small and medium businesses. The upgrade includes a revolutionary new feature called Auto IP Switcher that increases email deliverability rate to a new level.

"In an email marketing campaign, Auto IP Switcher can increase the inbox placement rate by at least 30%," said Bill Graham, CEO of 1and1Soft. "It ensures your emails will be delivered accurately and safely to your clients' inbox."

Auto IP Switcher prevents sender's email accounts from being blacklisted and enables email marketers to send more emails out per day. It is most effective when working with multiple free email services, such as Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail and AOL Mail.

Multi Account Manager is another feature that differentiates 1and1Mail from other mass mailing software. Through accurate grouping and segmentation of sender's email accounts in Multi Account Manager, email marketers are able to better organize their marketing campaigns and reduce the risk of being considered as a spammer.

"Our goal is to minimize the marketing cost and maximize the email marketing efficiency for our clients. I believe the new version can significantly boost 1and1Mail's market share," Bill continues, "we roll out an upgrade every 3 months and each upgrade is based on hundreds of customer feedbacks and new feature requests. That's why we have been growing so fast."

1and1Mail - Send mass emails

About 1and1Mail

1and1Mail is free email marketing software specifically designed for small and medium business worldwide to create, schedule and send personalized mass emails, manage email contacts and design email newsletters.

1and1Mail differentiates itself from other mass mailing software by offering unique features that can greatly boost your email deliverability and lower your email marketing cost. These features include Automatic IP Switcher, Multi-threaded Sending, Email Template Downloader and Multi Account Manager. With 1and1Mail, you are able to not only send more emails to your customers per day, but also build a better corporate image with professional and well-designed email templates.
 

When you are sending mass emails with 1and1Mail, sometimes you will see a pop-up message saying "You have reached the daily sending limit. The limit may be imposed by your email service provider or your setting in 1and1Mail." This is usually caused by the following:

1. You have reached the maximum sending amount you have set in 1and1Mail. To increase the sending amount, go to Account Manager, double click the email account you are using, and adjust the number under Sending Policy tab of that account. (1and1Mail suggests you not send more than 100 emails per account in 24 hours.)

2. You have reached the daily sending limit imposed by your email service provider (Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, AOL Mail, GoDaddy, etc.). At this moment, your email accounts or IP addresses may be suspended and it will not be recovered until 24-48 hours later. You can verify this by viewing the Reports. If the last few emails cannot be sent successfully, it is most likely your email accounts are temporarily suspended.

To prevent this from happening in future, there are several things you can do:

  • Send emails to double opt-in contacts only, which means, you should always obtain your recipients' permission before sending mass emails. Unsolicited emails will get you a lot of spam complaints within a short period of time. If that happens, no matter what email clients or email accounts you use, they would be suspended very soon.
     
  • Mimic manual sending by generating random time lag and content spin. The main reason that your email service provider blocks you is because they think you are using a automatic mass mailer spamming thousands of people. With 1and1Mail, you can generate random time lag between sending each email, and also spin different sets of contents in the email subject, body and attachments. This way, you are like a real person manually sending each individual email that looks different to everyone, not a robot trying to spam the world.
     
  • Always remove bounced and unsubscribed from your contact list. Keeping sending to bounced and unsubscribed emails would lead to high bounce rate and spam complaints of your email campaign. Such behavior is harming the email ecosystem, thus, it will seriously lower your Sender Score. Therefore, constantly removing bounced and unsubscribed emails from your contact list is very important to your email deliverability and future revenue stream.
     
  • Use advanced SMTP servers (e.g. turboSMTP) with 1and1Mail. Advanced SMTP servers provide a guarantee on the number of emails you can send out per day or per month through their SMTP connections and high email deliverability.
     
  • Use proxy servers to manage multiple email accounts. Most email service providers set a daily limit on how many emails one can send per hour or per day (Regarding the daily sending limit and send rate of commonly used email accounts, please refer to here). If you want to go over the limit, you can use multiple email accounts with proxy servers in 1and1Mail.

Some email marketers may encounter IP banning when sending mass emails through 1and1Mail. Whether or not your IP will be blocked depends on the following things:

1. If you are using your company email accounts or paid email accounts to send mass mails, your email service provider will simply suspend your email account or SMTP connection. Your IP is safe in this case.

2. If you are using free email accounts from Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, or Hotmail, and using dynamic IP through dail-up. Your IP will be temporarily suspended, but it will be resumed soon, because the IP will be assigned to someone else next time.

3. If you are doing mass mailing through a static IP, it is very likely your IP will be suspended until you contact your ISP and explain the reason.

In 1and1Mail 3.2 (to be released at the end of Oct), the Auto IP Switcher feature can help avoid the above situations as much as possible and increase your email deliverability.
