Have you ever needed to send an email invitation or notification to multiple email addresses? Are you tempted to send bulk email from your office email account?
However, if you are still compelled – before you send your next bulk email – consider these questions and guidelines:
How many email addresses are you sending to? Many internet service providers (ISPs) have an hourly limit on sent emails. Going over this limit could cause your account to get flagged for spamming. The same is true for the ISP on the receiving end. If your IP address is flagged on a receiving server as displaying a pattern common with SPAM, your IP address could be blocked – preventing your clients from receiving ANY email from you!
Are you sending to a relatively small number of recipients? Say you are sending an invitation to fewer than 50 clients – you'll probably be fine sending to this limited number, but PLEASE do not list all of your recipient's email addresses in the CC field. Use the BCC field to hide the addresses from others on your list. Enter your own address in the TO field.
What if you do want to send to a larger number of email addresses? Then you should consider using an email sending software designed for mass emailing. Better yet, let your team at IMS take care of it for you. Just contact your Personal Account Manager (dana at estateplanningpartners dot com or 877-352-2021x88) and request a quote for sending an email newsletter invitation or notification.
