Why use it?
How does it work?
The volume of auto-warmer emails will gradually increase by 1-2 daily. To avoid cluttering the inbox, we automatically archive the emails.
Can I warm up an IP or SMTP?
How to set up the Auto-Warmer feature?
Step 1. To use the Auto-Warmer feature, the email account that needs to be warmed up has to be added first as an inbox in QuickMail.
To add an inbox, go to Settings → Inboxes → Add an Inbox.

Step 2. After adding an inbox, the inbox needs to join the auto-warmer group.
To join the auto-warmer group, go to Settings → Inboxes → Select an Inbox
Step 3. From the inbox settings, go to the Auto-Warmer tab and click Join Auto-Warmer Group.
Alternatively, inboxes can be bulk added to the Auto-Warmer group by going to the Settings → Inboxes → Select All Inboxes → Join Auto-Warmer Group
The maximum daily Auto-Warmer Limit for each inbox is 10 on the free Auto-Warmer Plan, 20 on Basic Plan, and 30 on the Pro Plan.
Step 5. After requesting to join the auto-warmer group, we will verify if it can send or receive emails and have SPF & DKIM records correctly set up. It usually takes about an hour.
Step 6. In about an hour or so, an Auto-Warmer email confirmation will be sent to the email address you're using to log in.
If the inbox is confirmed to join the Auto-Warmer Group, we will send an email confirmation stating it has been accepted to the group.
Once confirmed for Auto-Warmer, the inbox will wait up to 48 hours before sending its first auto-warmer emails.
However, if an inbox got rejected from joining the group, we will also send an email notification stating the reason for the rejection.

Step 7. When the inbox is confirmed for auto-warmer, it will show that the Auto-Warmer feature is ON on the Inbox Settings.
How many Auto-Warmer Emails can I send?
- 10 on the free Auto-Warmer Plan
- 20 on the Basic Plan
- 30 on the Pro Plan
Cold Email experts suggest keeping the volume of daily emails low to reduce the risk of spam issues and email account suspension. So, we don't see the need to have more than 30 auto-warmer emails per inbox.
Where do I see the Auto Warmer emails?
To avoid cluttering the inbox, we automatically archive the emails. However, auto-warmer emails may sit in your inbox for a few minutes before they get automatically archived.
Outgoing Auto-Warmer emails
Auto-warmer emails sent and replies from the inbox can be seen in your email account's Sent items or on QuickMail's Sent Emails page.
Incoming Auto-Warmer emails
Auto-warmer emails received from other users will automatically be archived – to not clutter your inbox.
To look for auto-warmer emails in your email account, search for ' Sent with love using QuickMail Auto-Warmer feature'.
Why are auto-warmer emails not getting auto-archived?
Before getting auto-archived, auto-warmer emails may sit in your inbox for a few minutes.
However, if auto-warmer emails are sitting in your inbox for a while, there might be something in the inbox settings that could prevent us from archiving the auto-warmer emails.
Alternatively, it might be worth setting up an email filter/rule to automatically archive auto-warmer emails. This must be set up directly on the email account settings.
You may use the footnote: ' Sent with love using QuickMail Auto-Warmer feature' when creating email filter/rule
How do I check for the Auto-Warmer Report?
The Auto-Warmer Report will show information about the number of auto-warmer emails sent daily and where they are landing.
There are two ways to check the Auto-Warmer Report:
1. Inbox Settings
To see the Auto-Warmer Report, just go to Settings → Inboxes → Select an Inbox → Auto-Warmer Report
2. Agency Dashboard
If you have an Agency account, the auto-warmer reports for all inboxes across all accounts can be viewed or downloaded on the Agency Dashboard.

Is Auto-Warmer really free?
Yes, auto-warmer is free for the first 49 inboxes on the Auto-Warmer Plan. Beyond that, each costs $4.90 per inbox.
Note that upon signing up for a new account, it'll be on a 14-day trial. The subscription must be manually updated to the Auto-Warmer Plan to continue warming up the inboxes even after the 14-day trial.
To update the subscription to the Auto-Warmer Plan, go to Settings → Billing/Plan → Choose the number of inboxes → Choose Auto-Warmer Plan.
