Gmail Spam Requirements Published Jan 24, 2024 As you may have heard, Google shared an article about new Gmail spam requirements that they plan to enforce starting on February 1, 2024. Going forward, bulk senders (those sending 5,000 or more messages per day) will be required to: Authenticate their email Enable easy unsubscribe Ensure they're sending wanted email Authenticate Your Email What you'll need to do: Set up SPF and DKIM email authentication for your domain. Enable Easy Unsubscribe What you'll need to do: After updating to v16.3 (coming soon), emails sent by Rock will allow email clients like Gmail to show a native Unsubscribe button, making it easier to unsubscribe from communications and communication lists. This feature will be enabled by default but can be turned off with the new Email Medium setting in Rock, Enable One-Click Unsubscribe. Gmail and other email clients may have additional requirements before showing the Unsubscribe button. According to a Google Support forum, "Gmail doesn't show the Unsubscribe button until it has assessed your domain and decided that you are reliable." Ensure You're Sending Wanted Email What you'll need to do: Nothing. According to Google, "Gmail will enforce a clear spam rate threshold that senders must stay under to ensure Gmail recipients aren't bombarded with unwanted messages." Rock can send a communication to a manual collection of recipients or recipients on a communication list. Unsubscribing from communication lists and mass email is now easier with emails sent from Rock.
