Email Marketer's Guide: What You Need to Know about Yahoo

Yahoo!Mail is a free webmail provider from the Yahoo company that saw the world in 1997. Now it’s one of the three largest mailbox providers with 225 million users.

In June 2017, Yahoo was acquired by Verizon Communications, which also bought AOL in 2015. By now, Verizon has not revealed any plans to combine Yahoo!Mail with other email services.

In Part III of our Email Marketer’s Guide, we will talk about Yahoo!Mail’s filtering process, services, and offerings for recipients and senders.

Hotmail was one of the first web based email services launched in 1996. It was rebranded as Outlook.com in 2013 to align with Microsoft’s desktop email application Outlook. At present, Outlook.com is one of the leading global mailbox providers with 400+ million active users.

Deliverability to Outlook.com and Hotmail.com domains concerns a lot of email marketers as Microsoft has the strongest filtering system which often times sends quite legitimate emails to the spam or junk folder.

Email Marketer's Guide: What You Need to Know about Gmail

Email filters used by mailbox providers do a good job – they keep spam out of our Inboxes. But from the other side, “thanks” to spam filters, every fifth legitimate email never reaches the intended recipient.

What’s more is that every mailbox provider uses its own filtering algorithm to distinguish good emails and spam. It makes it even harder for email marketers to deliver their emails to the Inbox.

Here we’ll take the mystery off to make senders understand the filtering rules of the top three mailbox providers – Gmail, Outlook, and Yahoo!Mail – and help them send their legitimate emails to the Inbox.

The Part I of our Email Marketer’s Guide is dedicated to Gmail.

How to Avoid Spam Filters When Sending Emails

How to Avoid Spam Filters When Sending Emails

How to avoid spam filters? Many, if not only every single email marketer has ever asked this question. Spam filters seem to be the main obstacle on the way to the recipient’s Inbox.

Probably you’ll be disappointed if we say that it is not possible to avoid spam filters, but you have to accept that fact. Spam filters are a part of the email delivery process. When you send an email, it is filtered: to the Inbox, to a special tab, to a spam folder, or it is blocked completely.

Filters play a massive role in the email deliverability. That’s why our goal at GlockApps is to help our users understand how spam filters work, how mailbox providers use them, and how to get the emails filtered to the Inbox.

How to Remove Your IP Address from the Hotmail/Outlook's Blacklist

Bad email practices typically lead to serious deliverability problems like spam placements, blocked and dropped messages which have a direct negative impact on your sender reputation and email performance.

To protect their users from unsolicited emails, mailbox providers often put bad senders to the blacklist and do not deliver their messages to the target recipients. Gmail, Outlook/Hotmail, Yahoo, GoDaddy and some other major mailbox providers maintain their own blacklists to stop spammers.

Dedicated vs Shared IPs: Which Should You Choose for Better Deliverability

How to Warm Up IP Address

When you hit "Send" in your email system or email service provider, your email is transmitted to the outgoing mail server and then to the mail server at the receiving ISP, which then decides what to do with your email based on the sending IP's reputation, authentication, your sending practices, and recipient engagement.

These factors directly influence whether or not your email will be delivered and where it will land (Inbox, Spam, Promotions).
