What is domain block-list? How it affects the mail merge campaign?
The domain block-list is the list of domains that will be filtered from your campaigns.
If you have added "spammer.com" domain in the block list. Whenever you send an email campaign every email address that has "spammer.com" domain (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org)will be excluded from your emails.
It will affect your mail merge campaigns as follows:
Your scheduled campaigns will detect the domains and filter those recipients out.
The domain block-list will work only for the campaign (and stages) in the Scheduled status. If you block a domain after you start a campaign, it will not consider those emails in that campaign. We would request you to remove the recipients from the campaign manually.
Please follow these steps to add domains in your blocklist:
- Go to Email campaign tab in the web-app and click on the Domain Block icon on the upper-right section of your screen (looks like a globe).
- Click on Add domain if you want to add a domain.
- Click on Upload domain list if you need to upload the entire list of domains that you want to add in your block list as shown in the image below:
Note: The Domain list should be in the form of .CSV
