Domain age

Thanks to this section, you can see how old your domain is, and whether it's safe to send multiple emails from it.

If the icon next to the name is green, it means that you can safely send campaigns from your domain, as it's old enough and has been properly warmed up.

When the dot is orange, it's a sign that your domain is too young, and you're risking burning it by sending out emails. You have to properly warm it up to be able to safely run your campaigns.

Why did we introduce the report?

To make you aware of the deliverability parameters. Here you can check the correctness of the set SPF and DKIM records. This is a report from the connection moment. You can refresh it afterward.

What does deliverability mean? Why is it important?

Deliverability is the number of emails that have reached the recipients' inboxes compared to the number of sent messages overall. The goal is to have as many of your emails land in your prospects' inboxes rather than going to spam folders. To ensure high deliverability rates, make sure you set up SPF and DKIM correctly. Also, don't forget about the domain and email address warm-up. Learn more »


My domain settings couldn't be verified. Why?

Woodpecker couldn't verify your settings due to a temporary issue. Click the 'Refresh' button to check your settings again. Give it some time. If the test failed, please update your domain settings and then try again.

The refresh button doesn't work. Why?

You can't refresh the results because your email is disconnected. Reconnect your email. Read more »
