Setup Sparkpost Account for Handling Bounces & Spam Emails

For making the good reputation of your Sparkpost account, you should keep the percentage of your bounce and spam rates as low as possible.

Make sure that your emails list should not contain invalid email. This process requires that your Sparkpost account must be configured with your MailGet account.

Once, You add Webhook to Sparkpost. It will start sending bounce & spam reports to MailGet.

And then MailGet will filter these bounce and spam emails before emails sending from next time.
