Why is my MailChimp account suspended?

Please view our more recent Knowledge Base here >>



If you tried to log in to your MailChimp account, but got an Account Suspended message, it's most likely because you've done something to set off a red flag. 

What causes a Red Flag in MailChimp? 

  • Account information that is too fake or anonymous for comfort. Like signing up as "John Doe" from "Nowhere, USA". Unless you are John Doe from the band X.
  • You signed up with an email account that's free. While this isn't a show stopper, signing up with a free webmail account combined with another issue could be a problem.
  • Your most recent campaign received spam complaints
  • Your most recent campaign looked "spammy" and we're trying to prevent spam complaints
  • You appear to be "cold calling" or sending to prospects who never gave you permission.
  • Your website doesn't have an opt-in process anywhere. We're definitely going to need to know where you got the list.
  • Your most recent campaign violates our Terms of Use in some way.
  • Your most recent campaign contains unacceptable content or something offensive.
  • Something else looks too risky for our comfort and we've gotta check it out.
