Getting Your Autoresponder Messages Through The Spam Filters

Getting Your Autoresponder Messages Through The Spam FiltersIn light of the spam problem, most email clients now have spam filters installed. These filters catch spam email and either move it to a ‘spam folder’ or automatically delete it. After spending a great deal
of time laboring over your series of autoresponder messages, it would be a shame to find out that the
majority of the messages that are sent out end up in the spam folder, or are automatically deleted as

You can avoid this in two ways. First, when anyone signs up to receive information from your
autoresponder, have them automatically redirected to a page that gives them instructions for ‘white
listing’ you. Email clients have an actual white list where the owner of the email client can add specific
addresses that should never be considered spam.

The other way to make sure that your autoresponder messages get through the spam filters is to check
them using one of the various spam checkers that are available online. These programs are often web
based, and free to use. They check your message for words or phrases that commonly trigger spam
filters in email clients. Don’t send out any autoresponder messages without doing a spam
check first!
