This has now been corrected.
Now if you use SendTransactionalEmail to send to firstname.lastname@example.org, the following exception will be thrown:
JangoMailNamespace.SystemDomainAddressException: Web Service Exception SystemDomainAddressException: Email address is on system-wide domain block list.
Similarly, if you unsubscribe the domain abccompany.com within your individual JangoMail account, and then you attempt to send an email to email@example.com via SendTransactionalEmail, this exception will be thrown:
JangoMailNamespace.UserDomainAddressException: Web Service Exception UserDomainAddressException: Email address is on account's domain block list.

Let's say I want to know who opened my email campaign within 100 miles of downtown Chicago (zip code 60610). I simply enter the data in the distance box and filter my data down:
Instead of filtering by distance, I can also choose a specific location by which to segment by using the Location dropdown menus:
Here is the sample filtered report for all Opens within 100 miles of zip code 60610. Note that actual email addresses have been blurred:
Our final phase III rollout of Geo Tracking will include a spectacular visual overlay on Google Maps showing you graphically where Opens, Clicks, and Web Page Views/Conversions came from. Additionally, you'll be able to export any segemented data into a new JangoMail Group with a single click. This will make sending followup email campaigns to geo targetted segments a snap!

You can now send all of your person-to-person and transactional emails through the JangoMail SMTP relay at relay.jangosmtp.net.
The benefits of relaying your individual email messages through relay.jangosmtp.net instead of your corporate email server or your ISP email server are:
- Open Tracking
- Click Tracking
- SMTP Logging
- DomainKeys/DKIM signing
- Automatic plain text and HTML message generation
- Grouping of different types of emails into different categories for ease of reporting
We will soon be publishing a detailed document on how to use the SMTP relay service, but for now, follow these steps:
1. Login to your account and go to My Options and Settings --> SMTP Relay.
2. Review the settings and setup an authentication scheme, either by IP Address or by From Address.
3. If you choose to authenticate by From Address, then your email system will have to authenticate into the SMTP relay service with your JangoMail account username/password. Additionally, all of your emails must come from the From Address(es) that you specify under My Options and Settings --> SMTP Relay --> From Addresses.
4. After you've setup your authentication and tracking preferences, start relaying your email through relay.jangosmtp.net. You can connect on port 25 or port 2525.
5. All Reporting is in real-time under Reporting --> Transactional Emails.

The following data is now available along with the email address of the subscriber that took the action:
- Zip Code
Here is a sample Open Tracking with Geo Tracking Report data from our client, Popcorn Palace:
Here is a sample Click Tracking with Geo Tracking Report from JangoMail's own JangoMail account:
A similar Web Site Activity with Geo Tracking Report is available if you implement Web Site Activity Tracking on your site, which allows you to see what web pages your subscribers are visiting after clicking on and leaving your email campaign. We're not showing a screenshot of that report, since the above two clearly illustrate the Geo Tracking columns.
What's coming ahead?
- The ability to segment Geo Tracking data based on any of the above parameters, and then send a new campaign to just those subscribers.
- The ability to do distance based segmentations. For example, send my second campaign to everybody that opened the first campaign within 100 miles from Chicago, Illinois.
- A visual overlay of geo tracking data over Google Maps.
