Every blacklist sites have its own policy and criteria for blocking an IP or domain.

Below are some points that might be the reason of getting blacklist your IP and domain:-

  • SPF and DKIM records are not configured.
  • High Spam and Bounce Rate. (i.e Spam Complaints < .15% and Bounce <8%)
  • Per hour email sending limit. Don’t increase your email sending limits rapidly.
  • Your domain is very new. Send emails with low volume and gain the reputation for your IPs and for your servers.
  • Email Content’s Quality
  • Don’t use the Spam Keywords like Free, Bonus in your subject line.

  • First, identify the reason for getting blacklist.
  • Then take the actions that needed for delisting.

If you've send emails that have bounced in considerable percentages that could very well be the cause. For high volume email marketing you should always verify your list before sending out newsletters. Without checking the email addresses before sending out a campaign will result in a high amount of bounces which will end up ruining your sending reputation i.e. getting blacklisted.

As an email validation service I would personally recommend trying Zerobounce, very good accuracy at over 98%, good prices and a an easy to implement API tool which will check the emails that are entered to your platform almost instantly.
