About

After a thoughtful, exhaustive review, I conclude the universe does not need another deliverability blog, but I’m going to inflict one on the universe anyway.

My name is Andrew Barrett. I’m Director of ISP Relations & Deliverability for a North Carolina-based e-mail service provider. I’m also currently serving as co-chair of the Senders’ Committee at MAAWG, an important organization in my line of work.

A very long time ago, I was the Legislative Coordinator for one of the first anti-spam coalitions among senders, recipients, and ISPs working to pass meaningful, sane anti-spam legislation.

A somewhat less longer time ago, I worked very briefly as Sr. Director of Operations for the world’s first subscription-based spam blocking service.

Not such a long time ago, I was Executive Director for a 501(c)(3) anti-spam consumer watchdog group.

What you read here may or may not be the views of my employer.
