Why use seedlist testing?

Seedlist testing reveals if your mail is passing global filters at Gmail, Microsoft, Yahoo/AOL, and all other providers.

When sending commercial email, it's important to understand what's likely to happen the next time you send to a recipient at a particular mailbox provider. Are your messages hitting SPAM at Yahoo! or going missing at Comcast? Are you sacrificing ROI because you lack the proper visibility into performance? Seedlist-based inbox monitoring is a key data point in solving this issue.

Do you need email certification and panel data?

Old-school solutions to modern challenges are not a recipe for success. That's why we love debunking sender mythology — so you don't get burned.


Myth #1: Everyone Needs Email Panel Data!

No, everyone sending commercial email today already owns the most relevant panel in the world: the people they're sending mail to. With currently available panel offerings there is no statistical significance for most senders and the data is often misleading and hazardous given its severe biases.

Myth #2: Email Certification is a Smart Investment!

For most senders – not all – the juice is no longer worth the squeeze. Cert won't help you at Gmail, the largest mailbox provider in the world. Based on changes in the modern email landscape, 250ok customers combine best practices with expert services to achieve world-class performance.

Myth #3: Seedlist-based Inbox Testing is Dead!

While some vendors downplay the value of seedlist testing, do so at your own peril. Seeds are like spam traps: by the time the red flag goes up, there's already a problem. They are a critical component in testing perimeter defenses like blacklists, global spam filters, and reputation in general.

How do I seed test my triggered email?

Transactional or otherwise triggered email messages are likely some of the most important messages your organization sends to your clients or users. The definition of “triggered email” can vary, but for the purpose of this article, I’m going to refer to any type of message sent outside of a large-scale, “batch-and-blast” deployment, as triggered mail.
