Welcome to Drip's December 2023 and January 2024 Release Notes. With Gmail and Yahoo’s new security requirements going into effect on February 1st, 2024, the focus has been on making sure that our customers are compliant and ready for the changes.
From implementing a one-click unsubscribe method to creating a new sending domain, we've been busy ensuring our platform remains compliant, efficient, and user-friendly.
Read on to discover more about the latest features, enhancements, and bug fixes in Drip.
One-Click Unsubscribe Method ✔️
To fulfill this requirement, all emails sent from Drip will include unsubscribe headers embedded into the email (no action required on your part). The new unsubscribe header will populate in one of two areas in an email.
Note: Google has not disclosed what determines whether the unsubscribe header is more prominent or hidden, but depending on several factors (domain reputation being the most likely), the unsubscribe header will show up in one of two compliant ways above.
Drip-Managed Sending Domain for Customers Not Compliant With Gmail & Yahoo’s New Rules 📨
To temporarily mitigate the risks of emails being withheld by Gmail and Yahoo per their new security mandates, we created a new verified Drip-managed domain and migrated all customers without a Custom Sending Domain tied to a compliant DMARC policy to it before February 1st.
For customers not in compliance with Gmail and Yahoo’s new rules, this means that to protect your deliverability to Gmail and Yahoo emails, all links, hosted images, and your from address will be tied to that domain until you create a CSD, validate and associate it with a compliant DMARC policy.
DMARC Policy Status & Notification ✅
View your DMARC policy status for each domain in-app in your domain settings. Additionally, we added another layer of domain status checks to look at and notify around DMARC status.
Updates to From Email Verification 📧
With the new security mandates from Gmail and Yahoo, we introduced a new way to set and verify your default custom from email address. Now, to verify a from email address, you must verify the corresponding sending domain.
Verified From Address Drop-Down in Email Builders
Select a verified from email address in your emails using the new drop-down. Note that to select a from address, it needs to be tied to a verified domain.
