Email deliverability is influenced by a number of criteria. It’s partially about how you create your emails. And, it’s also partially about how good your sender score is. This post focuses on the latter and specifically, how to find a sender score in any email newsletter.
How to find a sender score for an email
1) Go to your inbox and find a copy of an email newsletter you want to check
2) View the full header of that email:
3) Find the IP address of the sender
4) Go to senderscore.org and type in the IP address and submit it.
As you can see, my email newsletter from Living Social was sent via an IP address that has a fairly good sender score. Anything ~98+ is very good. Anything ~95+ is good. Once you get < 95, we’ve seen email newsletters start to go to spam at a much higher rate. If you are below 90, you are probably seeing a lot of emails go to spam.
