ReturnPath Certification

Do you want to join ReturnPath Certification Program ? Then you are at the right place.

I will now give you more details about the program.

What is the ReturnPath Certificate ?

Known as “Bonded Sender” in old days,ReturnPath company has more than 50,000 customers worldwide including ISPs,Universities and many other big companies.It helps determine deliverability for 85% of the mailboxes operated by the world’s top 20 ISPs.Hotmail,Yahoo,Aol,Roadrunner are some of the ISPs joining the certification program.When you join the program,you have chance to email 2 billion email users over your certified ips.The aim of the certification program is to help legal email senders to achieve reaching their customers without any trouble and getting filtered by spam filters.I could definitely help you get certified in the shortest time possible.

What is the advantage of getting Certified ?

If you get accepted to Certification program,all the emails you send over your certified ips will go to the inbox folder as long as there are no technical problems or you comply with the certification regulations.You will not worry about your emailing program ever again.. Increased deliverability and higher open rates are the main advantages of the program.As to a recent Return Path research,RP customers saw a 15% increase in email open rates for CNET.

How does the system work ?

Return Path maintains an outgoing ip whitelist which includes the ips of the certified senders and thus named as Safe Senders. Email receivers, such as ISPs and corporate domains,  use this whitelist to help them identify legitimate email. If you meet Return Path’s standards and are accepted into their program, your outgoing email IP address is added to this whitelist, resulting in higher delivery rates for your emails.There are two levels of certification
Return Path has two levels of certification: the Safe List and the Certified List. You get improved deliverability and open rates with both of the certificatin programs.

The Safe List: You become a “Safe Sender” when you are accepted into the program. As a Safe Sender,you are known by many spam filters so that your legitimate email is not filtered into junk folders.You are marked as a legal business owner who is following best emailing practices and using configured and authenticated servers.Getting into the Safe List means that you will be treated differently by spam filters like SpamAssassin.SpamAssassin,the most commonly used popular spam filter on the earth,lowers your email’s spam score and accepting you to the inbox folder.Leading ISPs and filtering companies rely on the certification program to identify legitimate and reputable businesses.This means  Safe senders experience improved inbox delivery to over 300 million inboxes worldwide.

 

The Certified List: To become a a “Certified Sender”,you should first be accepted into the Certification program and become a “Safe Sender”.If you comply with all of the program standarts such as complain and SRD limits,then you are granted to be a “Certified Sender”.Being in the group of Certified Senders has two main benefits; your links and images in your email bodies will be automatically enabled at Hotmail and Yahoo.You have to own a dedicated ip and 90 days of history to be eligible for Certified List.Do not forget that you have to pass an audit of email practices you have!
Senders with superior sending reputations may qualify to be upgraded to the Certified level. Certified senders are recognized by ISPs as the “best of the best” in the email universe and therefore, have privileged access to Return Path’s performance-based whitelist used by over 2 billion inboxes worldwide.To be upgraded to Certified, your email must meet superior performance standards and boast a strong reputation. This means that:
  • Your email rarely (if ever) elicit complaints

9. BYPASS CONTENT FILTERS

Program members receive a beneficial initial score with SpamAssassin filtering. This enables email senders to use words and phrases that may have traditionally caused their email to be filtered.
