  • Do not send campaigns to unconfirmed subscribers. In general phpList will do this for you.
  • Try to get subscribers to sign up using the phpList subscribe pages.
  • Avoid importing new subscribers.
  • After an import, send a first campaign explaining how you obtained the subscribers email address, and how to unsubscribe
  • Put the unsubscribe link at the top of your campaign.
  • Send your subscribers campaigns frequently.
Further explanation
Make sure your subscribers explicitly allowed you to send them email.

It is quite possible someone signed up, but changed their mind, and you need to respect the choices of your subscribers.

Send campaigns frequently.

If you regularly remind your subscribers about you, the chances that they stay subscribers are much higher. Even if you obtained the emails of your subscribers in a correct way, the longer it takes you to send them a newsletter the more likely it is that they completely forgot about you and consider your mails spam. Also, by regularly sending campaigns your database will be cleaner, because invalidated emails will be removed automatically. " Identify yourself.
