Conclusion User

eTrigue recommends that anyone using emails either through its services or anywhere else should adopt the Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group (MAAWG) Sender Best Communications Practices (BCP) which was created and agreed upon with collaborative input from both volume senders and Internet Service Providers.
