Go into your Outlook (OWA) and click the “Options” button the upper right corner and select “Create an Inbox Rule.”
Click “New.” You’ll see another drop-down that says “When the message arrives, and:” Then select, “It includes these words in the sender’s address.”
Type in the words MAILER-DAEMON. Press the green plus button. Type in the word “Delivery” and press the green plus button again.
Next, press the “OK” button.
In the second drop-down box, select “Delete the message”. Then press the “Save” button in the lower right corner of the page.
You should land on the screen that looks like this if you’ve done it correctly. You will then see this rule and any other rules you’ve created in the past.
Bounceback messages almost always contain the words “MAILER-DAEMON” and/or “Delivery” so setting up the rule to delete emails containing these words will move bounceback messages to your “Deleted Items” folder when you can go in and press “Empty” to get rid of them in two seconds.
This will automatically move bouncebacks out of your inbox for future blasts. Once they are in there, you can easily view them in one place before deleting.
You can test your rule by sending an email to an incorrect email address such as Santa@northpole.ccom. After 15 minutes, visit your “Deleted Items” folder and you’ll see the bounceback email in there.

Step 10: Select the email template that you saved earlier. Also, select the email address you want the message to come from. This is usually the agency owner.

You get good at what you do all day. You know a lot about selling insurance because that is what you spend your time doing. As a result, understanding how to implement marketing strategies designed to increase your agency’s survey scoring and participation may not be one of your areas of expertise.
If you are reading this blog post, it is likely that you are an Allstate Agent. You are responsible for selling insurance. You manage people and processes. If you’ve been in this business awhile, you realize that you can’t take care of every little detail yourself. You have to delegate.

Then there’s this thing called the ACES Survey and a certain amount of your clients need to participate in it. Your level of compensation is dependent on its results.
I talk to agency owners all day long and I get the feeling that sometimes they just get overwhelmed when it comes to how they are going to get their clients to participate in one more survey. I sense that some of them have given up.
After all, aren’t we “surveyed” to death in this world? Every organization from the cable company to Uber and back, wants you to spend a few minutes your time to take some stinkin’ survey.
So, the question of the day is this:
“How can you get more of your clients to take the ACES survey and answer it with 10’s so that you can maximize your renewal commissions?”
The infographic below is a simple blueprint that I would like to share with you that illustrates some easy things you can do today to increase your agency’s corporate survey participation and scoring.
Key Takeaway: The ideas illustrated below are simple and some of them, you may already be doing at some level. There is generally a synergistic effect that is captured when you are integrating a few processes in tandem while refining the details. Taking control of your survey scores is no exception.
Enjoy the infographic below that illustrates!
