Our achievement in keeping our mail server "white-listed" with important spam directories

There are over 250 global spam directories which effect delivery of emails. In reality keeping a mail server fully "white-listed" with ALL these directories is difficult. We have achieved though above 99% ability to keep clear on ALL these spam directories:

In the last 5 years, ie 1827 days, our mail server has only been on a directory affecting delivery of (some) emails for just 13 days:

13 days (0.71%) - affects delivery of just some emails
1814 days (99.3%)

Search and Social Networks

Search. Since 2000 we have been making sure clients are in the top pages on the searches on the main search engines and can often achieve page 1 positions even on very competitive search terms.

Border Transcription Services A most excellent value for money package and customer service skills second to none. The support to me as a freelancer (hence having no other IT people to turn to) has been tremendous. They offer website hosting, emails and a system for clients to upload files to me all included in one very reasonable annual fee. With no hidden costs, no nasty surprises and everything running smoothly at all times, I have never been kept waiting to respond to anything. I have tried other services and art71/seren is the only one I would recommend.
