Configuring email in the Cloud

What a relief! A few simple configuration steps gives me new hope for coping with email.

It unlikely matters to you, but it does to me: My inbox is down to zero. That is, both my two inboxes are empty. I get work email to my @skysql.com address and private email to my @arno.fi, both of which have been suffering from bad email habits.

Inspired by years of discussions with Giuseppe Maxia, who is living proof that proper IT tools make geeks work smarter, faster and better, I bought the book "lifehacker". The first one out of over 100 hacks is labeled "Empty Your Inbox (and Keep It Empty"), so I judged that piece of advice to be worth following.

That was a few hours ago. No, in that short …

14 Email Security Do’s & Don’ts

Note: This article originally appeared at http://www.messagesystems.com/wordpress/?p=84

Introduction

Anyone who follows the email marketing industry news is no doubt aware of the increasing number of well-publicized data breaches that have been occurring at the various major ESPs. In addition to the major ESPs, there are no doubt a number of less-publicized or even non-publicized data breaches occurring all the time at both smaller ESPs and in-house enterprise senders. The days when most of us in the email industry could watch from the sidelines and shake our heads have surely passed. Henceforth we should all operate on the assumption that we’re either now under attack as well, or will be shortly.

Email marketers have two valuable resources that malicious parties want to capture and exploit: information and infrastructure. …

How To Send One Billion Email Marketing Messages Per Month

One... *billion* emails!

One *Billion* Emails

In email marketing there are senders of all shapes and sizes, from small businesses using self-serve ESPs to the largest web properties self-sending to massive user bases. While only a few senders will reach or exceed volumes of one billion messages per month, the tools and practices needed to achieve such a volume level are applicable to all senders who want to succeed in email marketing.

My Hobby Project – Tweet 2 Email

I thought I would introduce my hobby project tweet2email.com.

I created Tweet 2 Email because I had certain people I follow in Twitter who do not post very regularly, but whose updates I do not want to miss in the flow of more regular posters. Tweet 2 Email allows you to follow someone via email by sending you hourly digests of a selected user’s updates. I later added the ability to subscribe to a Twitter search, allowing you to keep up with a given subject.

I built it using PHP, MySQL and a PHP-Twitter library I tweaked for my purposes.

I’m still testing and improving it, but if you need to track something in Twitter I invite you to give it a try.

Sales Engineer Wanted

Things are growing yet again at work and with it the number of people needed to keep things flowing smoothly. This time it’s the Sales Engineer team that needs a new person, working in the Baltimore/Washington area (our home office):

Getting Images Turned On by Default in Gmail

According to the MailChimp blog there’s a new program in place at Gmail that allows images in a message to be turned on by default with the following requirements:

  • There has to be authentication in place (either SPF or DKIM).
  • The recipient has to have sent at least 2 messages in the past to the sender.

Now that second one can be a challenge since a lot of senders do not use a reply-to address that their customers are sending to (in fact many use a noreply address), meaning that none of their subscribers will accumulate two sends and therefore never see images on by default.

Essentially senders need to start using a reply-to address that customers can use, and ideally one that they would otherwise use. As an example a support@ address would be used independently of the mailing, adding the …
