    Sending out bulk mail (not spam!)


    Hi everyone. We have a job board that we run for a client. A part of the job board is sending out email alerts to users daily, weekly or monthly. Every night out script now sends out an upward of 150 emails to the users, and it looks like some are bouncing back, probably being marked as spam.

    If you look here...

    http://mail.live.com/mail/troubleshooting.aspx#errors
    we are receiving error 550 SC-001

    Any idea's on how to solve this? Are there third party mail servers we can use that won't be marked as spam? We're currently with dreamhost.

    Check here if your IP address is blacklisted:
    http://mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx

    If it is, there are different way to get the IP removed from the list (as long as the reason is valid).

    Some things that you must have:
    - valid PTR
    - SPF
    - DKIM
    - feedback loop

    Ask your hosting if they provide a relay for customers. If not, there are many smtp relay (commercial) that will be happy to get your business.

    best.
