The feedback loop provides a way for email service providers to notify you when someone marks your email as “spam” in their email client. If you don’t set up a feedback look with the major email companies, you will not know when someone accuses you of sending spam. Over time this harms your reputation since those marking your email as spam are not removed from your distribution list.
Here are links to set up a feedback loop at several of the major email service providers
Note that Gmail does not currently provide a feedback loop, but instead is offering notification using the List-Unsubscribe header. If your email server is authenticated with SPF and DKIM, has a good reputation, and you use a List-Unsubscribe header, you will be notified when your recipient clicks to unsubscribe.
