    I have heard rumors that if you do not send mail to any g-mail accounts for a period of 1 week that your spam score is totally reset to 0 and you effectively are viewed as a "new" sender.
    Has anyone heard this or tried it, it doesn't seem right to me but I hope it is true ;-)

    Can you give us more info?

    Where did you read that, where are you sending from or you mean if from some address you do not send nothing to any gmail account, that G will relist you as a new sender? I didnt hear nothing about that but i somehow doubt that its like this but you never know. Its a strange world we live in :p

    I am sending from my servers about 10k to 100K e-mails a week. ALL of the g-mail accounts are going to the spam box and have virtually no open.
    The rumor is that if you take the mail server off line (do not sue it for 1 week) and do not send for 1 week to g-mail your "spam" score will be reset to zero and your e-mails will make it to the boxes.
    I deeply doubt this but I am wondering if anyone else has heard it.
    My sources say they have read it on the internet but cannot provide me links.
    I think it is Bull, but if there is a chance I have taken my mail server down and will not send to them for 1 week and see how it goes. If it works I will report back.

    Anyone have any links or anything to support or disprove this?

    Its a lot more complicated than you think. Without going into too much detail, you need to make sure that you have setup: rDNS, SPF, DKIM/domainkeys if you're sending from a one-off domain. Beyond that, you need to look at the rate you are sending at, how many IPs/domains you are sending from, and to make sure you're not sending too much too fast to the big boys. You want to pace out your sending. You should also make sure that you have an unsubscibe and your physical address in the footer of your message to be CANSPAM compliant.

    If your ip was softblocked by Gmail or any other provider, not sending them any mails would naturally reset the softblock. The idea is to mail with multiple ips and if you are a high volume mailer using something like volomp will automatically put your softblocked ips to sleep while the server continues to mail from the other ips

    it may sound weird but in some cases I have had those experiences, it does get softblocked.
    Inorder to go around that you need to do the following things.
    1.As PA said about the IPs
    2.different sending domains and ids, unique
    3.this problem also happens when most of the people report your mail as spam, so try your best to make it spam compliant
    4.try to split up your subscribers and try sending spun content.
    5. Email list , the more crap in it , more the risks!

    I have had faced this problem twice till now and the permutation and combination of the above methods have worked.

    And as you know time heals,it was not a week 5 days to be exact worked for me! :)

    no idea about that, may not be applicable to them as didnt face problem with thm, these days mailing companies come up with different strategies to stop spam and unsolicited mails... just like google updates , these mailing companies must be having spam updates too :p

    i havent heard of something like this. Moreover google is clever enough to figure out the spammers tricks. Either ways you can try and let us all know if it worked for you....
