Email on Acid

Great for use during the QA process prior to launching new email marketing campaigns to identify inboxing issues, spam red flags, and inconsistent design across ESPs prior to sending. Not so great for creating emails - better suited for testing them as EOA doesn't integrate with marketing automation platforms, so you'd be doing double work.

250ok is a great tool for companies that have recently switched ESPs to monitor inbox placement or for companies that historically have been having email deliverability issues and would like to learn about the root cause and improve. Unlike ReturnPath, 250ok doesn't offer certification, but honestly, you don't need certification if you follow the Gmail/Microsoft/AOL/Yahoo bulk sender guidelines. I haven't seen a company which significantly improved their results with that certification and I've been working for one major ESP for 7 years. 250ok is a good diagnostic/monitoring tool but it is not a panacea for those who continue to violate sender guidelines due to poor list/content management.

Pros

Email on Acid

  • Great intelligent HTML editor
  • Great inbox preview rendering
  • Excellent customer support

  • They provide a wide-ranging tool to view your email templates in many different email clients under different circumstances. We used this tool to identify specific issues we couldn't test that a small subset of users had complained about.
  • The Seedlist Optimizer Tool does the legwork for you to identify which ESPs are used the most and gives you a custom seed list for testing.
  • The Campaign Diagnostics report shows immediate feedback after sending on how your email is performing and where you can improve in the future.

Cons

Email on Acid

  • The name "Email on Acid" was a tough sell with my manager. She would hear it, laugh and not take it seriously.
  • The tool itself is one of the best so its hard to say something bad about it.

  • Does not specifically identify which email addresses are spam traps
  • This is software as a service, so it's not managed and you need to have team members who can make adjustments to your email program
  • Would be nice if 250ok had a direct relationship with ISPs and could reach out on your behalf

Alternatives Considered

Email on Acid

Ultimately, we chose Email on Acid because it provided exactly what we needed at a great price point. Litmus was another great option, but a bit more robust and expensive than what we were currently looking for

It’s cheaper than its competitors and it has dmarc tracking.
