Recommendations when using your own domain

When sending newsletters using CakeMail, you should be using an email address with a domain you own, that you’ve authenticated. Here are a few additional recommendations for the domain itself:

  • The domain itself should match the website where people signed up
  • DNS should be setup to authenticate using SPF/DKIM
  • Have working postmaster@ abuse@ addresses
  • Public (non-private) WHOIS information
  • Should not be more than 30 characters in length
  • Be registered for a minimum of 30 days (new domains look suspicious and could get blacklisted on Day Old Bread or Spam Eating Monkey)
  • Should not contain unnecessary “-“ dashes or dots “.” (ie: info@this-email-is-from-our.marketing.department.abc.com)
