    Below is a brief changelog for the past month.

    Code Base Changes

    • Fixed From: header issues in GMail (from now on GMail will display From: Name <email>, not From: mailer@extrememember.com On Behalf Of Name <email>);
    • For better deliverability, all transactional emails (Payment/Prepayment Notifications, Login Information, Password Reminders, Optin Confirmations) are now sent from dedicated IP addresses;
    • Improved bounce processing;
    • Bulk emails sent to GMail satisfy all requirements outlined in Google’s Bulk Senders Guidelines;
    • Users who generate many spam complaints have been moved to a separate IP range, which means better deliverability for good users;
    • Updated YourOwnCSS plugin to comply with the latest WordPress plugin standards;
    • Lots of bug fixes in “Import from CSV” tool (Memberships > Import from CSV);
    • Lots of bug fixes in OneTheme Plugin;
    • Removed a lot of legacy code;
    • Better comment spam protection: all spammers are automatically reported to Stop Forum Spam (this feature is currently available only for OneTheme and applies only to the spam detected automatically) and Blocklist.de (blocklist.de sends abuse reports to spammers’ ISPs so that they take actions against the spammers).

    Server Side Changes

    • All sites are monitored 24×7 by Hyperspin and Limestone Networks;
