Email Credibility Dashboard: Track your account's email sending practices

Email Credibility Dashboard: Track your account's email sending practices

Greetings Customers,

We are rolling out an Email Credibility dashboard to help CRM administrators monitor the email sending practices of their organisation, and to help them implement domain authentication and email sending measures. Administrators can track spam complaints and bounce rates, while also making changes to their email sending setup by adopting Zoho CRM's recommendations.

Once this feature is made public, this Email Credibility dashboard will be available to administrators in all Zoho CRM paid editions, under Setup > Emails > Email Deliverability, in the Email Credibility tab. Through this dashboard, Zoho CRM will create an Email Credibility Score for each organisation, based on their sending practices, and will recommend actions administrators need to take in order to improve their scores. 

The credibility score is a numerical value set on a scale of 1 to 100, where any score above 70 is considered a good score. 

The following are score ranges, for reference:

Scores are generated by assessing the number of spam complaints and bounce volume gained over time for each customer account. The recommendations made to administrators to improve their scores include actions like adding an unsubscribe link within all email templates, authenticating email sending domains, and periodically cleaning their mailing list, amongst others.

The dashboard will also help administrators understand the number of email bounces their account has received - filtered by users and CRM features (mass emails, workflow emails etc.), and how their credibility score has changed over a certain period, using dedicated charts.

Additionally, the credibility score given to accounts helps the Zoho CRM team to identify accounts with poor email sending practices, and provision our email infrastructure and IPs accordingly, so that the emails sent by accounts with good email practices are delivered on priority, and aren't hampered by the poor practices of a few accounts who happen to share the same infrastructure.

Important notes:
  1. Zoho CRM calculates email credibility only for the following:
    • Emails sent using the built-in email functionality of Zoho CRM
    • Emails triggered by automation
    • Bulk emails sent using the mass emails feature
    • When Email insights are enabled, the emails sent via a configured mailbox using IMAP or POP3 will contain Zoho CRM's email tracking link. As a result, these emails will be taken into account when calculating the score.
    • Emails that are sent using the relay servers when Email insights are enabled.
  2. Emails that are sent from inboxes configured with IMAP or POP3 will not be taken into account when calculating the email credibility of an account if Email insights are turned off. This is because these emails are sent through the servers of the configured email provider and do not utilize Zoho CRM's email infrastructure.
  3. Zoho CRM calculates an account's email credibility score based on a collection of internal parameters that include the total active users present in the account, and the number of emails sent by these active users.

Availability: This feature is available for users in all DCs.

The update for today concludes here. Stay tuned for more significant improvements on the horizon. If you have any feedback or questions, please don't hesitate to share them with us by leaving a comment.

Thank you for your time, and I hope you have a wonderful day!
