E-mail service provider MailChimp has flagged three new words that wreak open-rate and (possibly) deliverability havoc in e-mail subject lines. You’ve been warned. Use these at your own risk!

  • Help: Nigerian spam seems to have spurred efforts to flag this word.

  • Reminder: Needs to send a reminder? It’s probably better to avoiding the word and instead use the subject line to indicate the message contains useful information.
