The deliverability of emails depends on two main factors:
- The content of the email
- The reputation of the server and email domain name
The Content of the Mail
Anti-spam systems can analyze the content of emails. That is why it is important to follow some good practices.
- Do not write the text content of the email in images. The text must be typed,
- Do not insert images that are too large: the recommended width is 1200 pixels, and the maximum weight of each image is 200 Kb,
- Limit the number of links contained in the e-mail (if possible less than three),
- Do not insert links that redirect to sites which category or risk level is dangerous (e.g. file transfer site),
- Do not send text content or heavy attachments (> 4 MB) that could be interpreted as malicious (e.g. inappropriate or agressive marketing terminology, excel macros...),
- Send test emails, contact your IT and Eventdrive support if you identify any issue.
