In today’s newsletter, you’ll find out why some email warm-up tools are shutting down. What this means for your email outreach, and what you can do next to keep your deliverability high and avoid spam. 🙌
Tools like GMass are shutting down their warm-up service because of … Google’s rules.
Most email warm-up tools, including GMass, use the Gmail API to provide their services. Google decided that GMass and other warm-up tools out there would risk losing their Gmail API access if they didn’t shut down their warm-up services.
So to keep their Gmail API access, GMass and other warm-up tools decided to shut down their warm-up services.
While working on making lemwarm the best warm-up and deliverability booster on the market, we saw this situation coming…

That's why it's so important to keep your deliverability high. Here are 3 tips for personalizing your emails and keeping them away from the spam folder.

Here’s G, and in this email, you’ll get tips to send your emails and keep them away from spam efficiently.
Are you sending emails the right way to keep them away from spam?
This means sending emails at a natural pace that matches human behavior.
Sending emails the wrong way can:
→ ruin your sender reputation
→ land your emails in the spam folder
→ make email providers block your address
So, here are 4 email-sending tips that help you send emails correctly and avoid the spam folder.
Don’t go over the limit of your email provider. Keep the number of emails sent between 50 and 200 per sender per day. If you need to deliver more emails, it's best to use multiple sending addresses.
This is the ratio between emails sent to your audience and emails received by you. You should keep this ratio at least 4:1. So, if you send 200 emails daily, aim to receive at least 50 replies.
If you haven’t been sending emails but suddenly start sending 500 emails daily, email providers will consider them spam. To avoid landing in the spam folder, send a consistent volume of emails daily. When you need to increase your sending volume, do it gradually.
Never send all your emails at the same time. This triggers email providers and lands your emails in the spam folder. To prevent this, spread the sending schedule throughout the day.
