Guidelines for bulk mail sending, and to prevent being labeled as a spammer

Best practices for sending messages and not being marked as a spammer:
Yahoo

Google

Configure ncrpt:
To avoid being labeled as a spammer when sending bulk mail, define nrcpt in:
$sympahome/etc/nrcpt_by_domain.conf

This lets you control the number of recipients per SMTP session depending on destination domain.

Create an SPF record

SPF records help define who can and cannot send mail from your domain.

Use DomainKeys (DKIM) to further legitimize your messages

DKIM is a signing method that use DNS to access to public keys. Because Sympa modify the message before to brodcast them, it may alter existing DKIM signature. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DKIM
