  1. Automatically be notified of major deliverability issues like being blacklisted by some providers

    A noisy sender on the IP address we were sending on caused it to become listed on a problematic blacklist and rejected by all Outlook/hotmail email addresses. We only found out when a customer told us they weren't getting the password reset. It would be great to be notified about events like these so we could investigate sooner.

  2. Stop using blacklisted servers to send mail for fixed IP accounts

    Fixed IP accounts should not use random server IPs to deliver mail when current server load is high. This results in emails not being delivered because the sending server IP is often blacklisted. Fixed IP accounts help improve sender reputation, and this is negated when mail is sent by a server that is blacklisted.

  4. Blacklist senders & domains

    Ability to blacklist a specific sender or a specific domain to avoid Mailgun to send emails to these. In this way one can avoid sending a "successfully received" email as replies to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn invites, plus to unsolicited senders (not necessarily spam, but unsolicited in the eyes of the Mailgun user).
