sciascia: Thanks guys, the experiences shared seem to be common and certainly backup up our experience with Spark support - the polite ‘talk to the hand’ method!


I'll raise the concern.

As noted before the business email folk should assist with this.

chevrolux: I've said it loads before, SMX just need to pull their heads put of their as5es!

There is absolutely no justification for the ridiculous level of spam filtering they employ. .

 

 

Sure, and we get @xtra users who complain endlessly about having just 2 spams get through .

 

Cant have it both ways .

Well those people simply need to be educated that it's just part of life when you smack your email address in to every text box possible on any random website.

We were having issues last year, got in touch with business support, and they fixed it, and then it's happening again.

 

 

I send the same person I was dealing with examples of the bounce message, the email headers from message we were trying to send, and a couple of email addresses that were bouncing. They reply asking for:

 

 

Email address you are sending from

 

A Copy of Email you are sending - Click File > Save As (add as attachment)

 

A Copy of the Bounceback / Error Message – Click File > Save As (add as attachment) or add as a screenshot

 

List of Email accounts unable to send to (if there are many please restrict to at least 5) –

 

 

I realise they have to follow a script, but did they even LOOK at what I sent them?

I work at a fairly large, household-name type NZ organisation (won't name it here) and we've had nothing but trouble sending regular emails (not automated or marketing emails) to xtra addresses this year. Virtually everything is blocked as spam. The problem comes and goes but is present for weeks at a time.

 

Our IT department have apparently been told by Spark that there is nothing they can do. We've had to ask our customers to sign up for gmail addresses so we can communicate with them.

Thanks for all the replies,

 

I contacted business email support and sent examples, will report back once I've heard.

 

The agent said emails without unsubscribe links get blocked which sounds weird because while our marketing emails contain a link, our order/shipping notifications and business emails don't contain unsubscribe links - do anyone's?

 

Cheers

 

Ben

There is no requirement for  emails to have 'unsubscribe ' links in any emails as far as I am aware. Just as long as there is a way to subsubscribe, such as emailing back as reply requesting to be unsubscribed.  Details are at https://www.dia.govt.nz/Spam-Frequently-Asked-Questions#uns

Well, I didn't come away with much confidence but now I'm not holding my breath.

 

What the agent told me didn't make sense as people getting our purchase or shipping notifications are buying stuff from us, it's not about marketing/subscribing/unsubscribing etc.

 

Same goes for people who've emailed me using my business card, my reply doesn't contain an unsubscribe link.

Received this reply from the Spark email team...

 

'Domain is marked as clean. It is now resolved.'

 

Will monitor and see how we go.
