    I see, also you should know 128IPS vs 256IPS is a pricy factor.
    i would recommend takeing 2 smaller servers and spread the workload overall you will have more bandwidth, and no single point of fail.

    well, take a look around the forum, make your mind what looks best for you.

    always happy to help!

    I agree with your suggestion as well. Many providers will also give discounts for a mass amount of IPs.

    Myles, I think I have a guess on that: although he has internal B2B lists, there are obviously emails on free mail services like Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, AOL. Some of them limit the global # of messages per day/week/month that a single IP address can send them. Thus, people do this kind of "rotation" even for legitimate mail.

    mcgmiami: Also a note to warn you: there is a probability no host will take your account immediately in the middle of the night on a weekend where Monday will be a holiday for such a "suspicious" activity, even if you pay by Credit Card (as there's chargeback possibilities). This is the kind of account that requires some kind of heavy fraud screening and warranty of payment reception prior to letting the machine in your hands... Anything would raise a red flag now.

    Myles, you are 100% correct. And we publish 10 different eNewsletters so you can imagine the challenges we face. We like to rotate every few days, giving the ip's a breather. We have found that by doing so eventually with a very low complaint ratio sending limits and whitelisting requests are eased and made easier. It's not that the big free ISP's don't want to permit legit emails coming in, its more that they want to prevent unlegit emails from coming in ie -someone who has no regard for their host and just wants to send allot of email fast - that's why there are sending limits on ip's/domains that the ISP (and its users )is/are not familiar with.

    I doubt you'll be allocated 256 IPs so you can send bulk e-mails, though maybe you'll have luck with some company giving you 128 IPs.

    If you take the time to set up everything properly and to request white lists, you can deal with a smaller number of IPs.

    Can you confirm your lists are confirmed opt-in?

    Thanks for your message. Realistically, I just need to make the arrangement, proper config will take a few days > even on our end.
    (IP's/ Install/ Rdns etc etc ) It seems on the weekend is when I have time to talk in the forums like this.

    I really do thank you for your concern - point well taken.

    That sounds less problematic :-D
    But still, you will need to prepare a good justification for most of the companies, as usually anything over a /29 or /28 is enquired for the usage justifications.

    Can you specify your company name, current host, and current IP range for the providers in here to peek at?

    Agreed.

    I know of dedicated mail clusters that run 24x7 pumping out mail campaigns on single ip's without any deliverability problems. The lists are clean, well maintained and true double opt-in to the specific sender. Furthermore, with a clean profile, staying on a known ip is actually advantageous because the ip builds a reputation over time.
