Having Email problems Gmail to improve your outgoing Email Success Rate

without comments

By default all of our customers are setup on a Godaddy webmail.  Godaddy offers a very robust webmail system which is easy to use and is free (included by Godaddy) as part of it’s domain service which we use.  However for sports handicapping sites, it does have its drawbacks:  1.  You may not be getting all your emails.  2.  You are not getting your emails sent.

First of all Godaddy does the following:

–  Implements a very stringent spam filtering system for outgoing emails.  All outgoing emails are sent through what is know as a SMTP server.  The filter has a bias against sites that have a sports handicapping theme thus it is very difficult to send emails out and receive emails.  We have experienced a lot of problems with this and have seen up to 50% of our clients affected by this.

Here’s the solution:

– Setup a free gmail account and use their smtp server.  You can still use your domain name.  For example if your website is www.sportshandicapper.com and your email is admin@sportshandicapper.com  you can still use this email address.  The only difference is instead of using Godaddy you can use gmail as the email client software.

–  To set this up you can refer to these instructions:  https://support.google.com/mail/answer/22370?hl=en
