Senders who use a ‘noreply@’ email as their From address give the impression that they don’t care about feedback.

Email is a two-way means of communication; using noreply@ can prevent important customer feedback to make its way back to you, especially if you don’t give alternate contacts within the body of the email.

  • Using a noreply@ address has been associated to lower open rates, more unsubscribers and higher complaint rates.
