Understanding your email sender score

When you run an email sender score check, you’ll find that your IP address has a score between zero and 100. A score of 100 is perfect. If your score is in the 90s, it means you are diligently following email best practices for bulk senders. If your score drops any lower than that, you could have some serious deliverability issues. Email providers will begin to send your messages to the spam folder or, in an even worse scenario, block your messages from sending to recipients entirely.

Email trust score service from Verias is designed to keep your sender score high, so email providers will have a greater level of trust for your messages. Your sender score is based on a wide variety of parameters, which will include data from many of the following factors:

  • Sent email
  • Email opens, replies, forwards, deletions and unsubscribes
  • Recipients who mark messages as spam
  • Complaints filed with your ISP about your messages
  • Spam traps your messages hit
  • Email bounces
  • Inclusion on any blacklists
