Iâ€™ve been lurking around here for a little while reading everything I can all the while riddled with anxiety because I think Roundy, as he is affectionately known, is going to PM me at any moment demanding that I state my business. Put simply, I am a guy who wants to earn a living from mailing. I also want to be sure that every American gets the chance to save money on their cable bill and if they still canâ€™t afford it, I want to be able to provide them with an avenue for short term loans. I have very little mailing experience but am somewhat technical. I also have a partner who is quite technical and has some experience with mailing. I am here because there is a steep learning curve and knowledge is power. I, like many of the members here, would love to pay it forward. Unfortunately, at this time I donâ€™t enough to contribute in any meaningful way. When I see my opportunity to jump into the fray, I will. My game plan is to work with GI in the very short term while I am learning about mailing and also warming IPs and aging domains for TLD. I am currently working with a reputable network that has been mentioned in a favorable light in this forum many times. I am using PMTA. I have 3 servers set up, one SSDs with /26 for MTA and 2 redundant web servers with /29, RAID1 with custom DNS. We backup our data over night to backup external server. IPS are all clean. rDNS, DKIM, SPF, Message-IDs and feedback loops and other important items are taken care of. Open-ish dialogue with server provider. My pitfall so far has been the data. Because I didnâ€™t have a place to go, I ended up purchasing low-quality data and it hasn't been performing because of ridiculously high hard bounces. I hope to establish and grow some great long-term relationships with super users of this forum. Hopefully they can steer me in the right direction as far as data goes. My journey in mailing is just beginning so Iâ€™ll be posting some more technical questions when they arise. Thanks for reading.
