Why do you need to warmup your email inbox?

Email warmups refer to the process of gradually increasing the volume of emails sent from a new or unused email account to build a positive sender reputation with internet service providers (ISPs).

A warmedup email inbox helps you to avoid spam filters and ensure better deliverability rates.

We recommend that you create an email account especially for your email inbox manager agents. So warming up their inbox before sending out emails from their account will help your email marketing/inbox management campaigns start successfully.
