Email marketing is a great way to reach customers and increase sales. But if you're not careful, you could end up in trouble. A dedicated sending domain gives you control over what appears to be coming from your business. That means you can avoid spam filters and other issues that might get your messages caught by unwanted mail servers.

Don't let your email marketing efforts go unnoticed! Get started right away with a dedicated sending domain.


Please Note: 

Dedicated sending domains are only applicable to the users in the LC Email system.

If you are using a new domain that has never been used for email please make sure to warm up your domain before emailing to a large list. Failure to do so will results in poor deliverability results.
