  1. Show us the sender score/reputation.

    Reputation is everything in email delivery.

    From your own documentation: "One of the most important assets you have in the email world (much like the real world) is your reputation. If you do not have a good reputation tied to your domain and your IP address (“IP” used herein for abbreviation), your email will not reach your recipients’ inboxes." (https://documentation.mailgun.com/best_practices.html#reputation)

    It'd be nice to access the sender score [on a per domain basis] through the API. Knowing that info, directly, would give domain holders the warm fuzzies on their reputation without having to go elsewhere (senderscore.org).

    • 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.

      • Add blacklist check via DNSBL like http://www.blacklistalert.org/

        Add blacklist check via DNSBL like http://www.blacklistalert.org/ for each IP on each domain, make it available from UI and API

        • 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).

          • 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.

            • change retry rules for mx failure

              Currently if an email is sent to a non existing domain, you report an MX error and then retry for hours. It should fail immediately.
