Gmail and Yahoo’s New Email Sender Requirements: How Bloomreach Customers Can Stay Prepared

By Gavin Sherry

01/02/2024


As you might’ve heard, Gmail and Yahoo are making some significant changes to their email sender requirements in February 2024. 

Change can be scary, especially for businesses that rely on a marketing channel as important as email. But if you’re a Bloomreach customer, you have nothing to worry about. 

Most of the requirements laid out by Google and Yahoo have been considered emailing best practices for years, and they reflect the standards we advise our customers to hold their email marketing efforts to. These changes are already built into Bloomreach Engagement, and our customers have been advised on the importance of adopting these good deliverability practices since day one.

If your business needed to make any crucial changes, we would’ve already reached out to advise you to do so. And you can rest assured that if essential changes ever come along, our team will work directly with you to guide you through them.

These new guidelines simply change our longstanding recommendations into requirements. They aim to improve email deliverability and user experience by focusing on authentication and user rights, which has always been a focus for Bloomreach. In particular, we've been promoting a DMARC policy for years, and most clients have adopted this along with other best practices that set them up for success.

If you want to double-check that your business is prepared for the changes, here’s a handy checklist you can run through to make sure you’re 100% ready:
