Overall, I think we should have a way to better filter the e-mail addresses we allow. If we had access to a filter to what we allow or disallow, you could easily include webmaster@*.* or info@*.* Likiewise, i have had issues with hotmail accounts since virtually every spam report is from somebody with a hotmail account and sometimes AOL. How can I tell? Anyone who reports spam is instantly removed from your mailing list and is now listed in your unsubscribe report for that campaign. When you have 10 spam reports and 10 hotmail accounts that are now unsubscribed....and when these numbers add up for almost every campaign, you know it's because hotmail and some AOL account users make very quick use of their spam buttom. Anyway, I have added a note to my subscribe page that we no longer accept hotmail addresses and for them to please use another address. This does not stop them from signing up with a hotmail address, however it has reduced their frequency. I would rather have a filter to totally eliminate this. Will i possibly lose some potential customers...yes, but I will eventually reduce the number of needless spam reports. I totally agree there should be more filters for what we accept upon somebody signing up in the first place.

At one time, I simply deleted all e-mail addresses that bounced or were blocked, but during one campaign, I forgot to and sent out the next campaign....and guess what, many of the addresses that bounced on the previous emial, didn't bounce again. Basically, this meant that in the past, I had probably deleted tons of addresses that were fine, but just showed up odd at some time. Here's the issue, now i open each bounced referenced and look to see if this email has bounced at least twice before I delete it. I have over 7500 addresses and i typically have 200-400 bounces or blocks and it takes a ridiculously long period of time to do this. With all the reporting options, you do not provide any way to see or request the number of sequential times any specific e-mail address has bounced. In addition, even if choosing to export and do this sorting on my own, this information is not provided. I would love to see that when you looked at the overall list of bounced or blocked e-mails, that a final column were added to show the number of sequential bounces...or even a system where auto filtering is setup to delete any address that bounces or is blocked 3 or more times in a row. We are paying for the number of people in our lists. It would be nice if this also included the ability to make these lists of higher quality as well. Please make some changes so we can better handle this issue.
