    Rackspace.com Spam Reputation

    We are planning to move our website to rackspace.com. Our users send a lot of email invites (like myspace,facebook) so sending outgoing emails is more important to us!.

    But on a quick online search i saw rackspace hosted websites had lot of spam complaints around 2001-2003. I am now worrying moving there may affect our email deliverability!

    Anyone know what is the current email reputation of rackspace?. I would appreciate your reply!.



    PS:-
    We have a strict no-spam policy. All out emails are user initiated (user imports his webmail contacts, selects the emails-ids and then send it to their friends just like in facebook). We also feature a 1 click unsubscribe link in all our outgoing emails and also our physical postal address.

    They do not appear to have any current spamhaus listings.

    Thanks HiVelocity, also its better to check the ip addresses we get with the blacklists, right?

    Yes, if you are getting a dedicated server it will have Static IPs and that is what will be looked at first from a blacklist perspective.

    Really blacklists are usually only for 24 hours and RackSpace is on top of these sort of issues and they get them resolved quickly!
