Sender addresses we restrict

Sending emails through suspicious addresses can negatively impact both our domain reputation and your deliverability rates. Here are the addresses that users typically find suspicious:

Public domains

A public domain email address is one provided by free email service providers such as Gmail, Yahoo!, AOL, Outlook, etc. Because spammers often use public domains like patricia@gmail.com for their sender addresses, the reputation for these domains tends to be low. Additionally, using a free domain sender address increases the chance that your emails will be classified as spam or junk. We recommend you to use your business domain to send marketing emails. To learn more about using public domains for marketing emails, click here.

Restricted public domains

Among the public domains, Yahoo! and AOL have strictly applied DMARC policies that prevent their emails from being sent from any server that doesn't belong to them.

Noreply addresses

Noreply addresses indicate that the sender is not interested in receiving any responses from the contact. Mailbox providers have extra checks for emails from noreply addresses and the emails are more likely to land in spam folder.

Disposable email addresses

Disposable or temporary email addresses are only active for a short amount of time and are generally used to spam inboxes. Therefore, we don't allow the use of disposable addresses in Zoho Campaigns.

Role and group addresses

Role addresses (like admin@ and marketer@) and group addresses (like team@ and support@) are not meant for sending marketing and promotional emails. Contacts won't be able to easily recognize them, and because mailbox providers will likely mark these as spam, there's a high chance that emails sent from role and group addresses may land in spam.

Free domains (.tk, .ml)

Users aren't familiar with domains like .tk and .ml, and using them will result in poor email deliverability. We recommend that you add your business domains to send marketing emails.

Use your business domain sender address

A domain-specific sender address is an email address which has a unique domain that belongs to specific domain owners. It is recommended to use this type of sender address to reduce the risk of your email being flagged as spam. A domain owner can authenticate the domain to validate their identity as an authentic email sender and declare that their emails are from a valid source.
To use your own business domain sender address:
  1. Purchase a domain from any web-hosting site.
  2. Add the sender address with the verified domain to your Zoho Campaigns account.
  3. Verify your address.
  4. Send email newsletters to your contacts from this address.
Benefits of using business domain sender addresses:
  1. Email Deliverability: A verified domain increases the likelihood that your emails will reach the recipients' inboxes rather than their spam folders.
  2. Trust: A recognizable sender address increases the trust a recipient will have over you and your business.
  3. Brand Recognition: A verified domain-specific sender address helps users recognize your business in the marketing world.
