Happy Sweet 16, Return Path!

Posted by Tom Sather 

Yesterday marked Return Path’s 16th anniversary. Cher’s “Believe” was the number one song that year, and it’s hard to “believe” it’s really been 16 years since Return Path was incorporated. 

Every year at this time, we reflect on this day and look back on our successes. Things change from one year to the next, but one thing remains the same: our success always depends on our customers. We highlight just a few of these customers in our recent ebook, Guardians of the Email Universe, which demonstrates how today’s businesses rely on their real-life “email heroes.” 

In 2015, our focus has been on data, making data useful, and providing meaningful insights through data. A few of our most interesting data points from 2015 include:

  • 2 trillion+ emails analyzed in our data platform
  • 2.7 billion emails monitored for deliverability issues
  • 465 billion messages certified
  • 212 billion emails evaluated for fraud
  • 15 billion fraudulent emails blocked from reaching customers
  • SKU-level purchase data from 5,000 retailers
  • 76 million email receipts parsed
  • Data collected from $4 billion in purchases

Happy Sweet 16, Return Path—and here’s to many more!
