Responsible email practices are essential in shared hosting environments:

  1. Avoid spamming: Refrain from sending unsolicited emails or engaging in spamming activities.
  2. Use email authentication: Implement SPF and DKIM, available through DataPacket’s email services, to reduce the chances of your emails being marked as spam.
