New feature: webmail spam filter checks

[ 0 By

Wouldn’t it be useful to know in advance if your email newsletter was going to be flagged as spam? From today we’re now checking this for you when you run a Litmus email test.

Each time you send us an email to be tested, we’ll alert you if it was flagged as spam by any of the webmail systems, including Hotmail, Gmail, AOL Mail and Yahoo! Mail.

Here’s an example of the results for a test:

You can see there’s an alert next to each email client which flagged your email as spam. We also show this on the full size preview:

We’re really excited about this. It’s the first step toward comprehensive spam filter testing which we’ll be unveiling in the near future.

As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments.
