February 26, 2021: Changes is Deliverability Reporting and Deliverability Advisor
Emarsys has removed the inbox placement traffic light from Deliverability Reporting and dedicated IP reputation from Deliverability Advisor as of February 24, 2021. This decision follows the policy changes at Google, which limit access to Gmail, one of our most important mailbox providers. This has resulted in Return Path from Validity being removed from the market. Emarsys decided to focus on other areas that we believe will bring more immediate value, like more flexible opt-in management in email, improved Deliverability Advisor with more actionable recommendations or even scaled transactional marketing messages for more 1:1 personalization. Emarsys and Validity will continue to work together to bring you unrivalled email success. Tools from Validity, such as their Everest solution, are available directly from Validity.
Our Support and your Client Success teams are at your disposal in case you have any additional queries.
