Create recipient lists

Last Updated: Sep 27, 2017

A recipient list is a list of destination addresses used for sending batch emails.

Create a recipient list

  1. Log on to the DirectMail console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Recipient Lists.
  3. At the upper-right corner, click New Recipient List. A dialog box appears.
  4. Enter the list name, alias address, and description in the dialog. Click OK.
    Note:
    • The list name is used to call a list and must not be duplicated.
    • The alias address is an email address provided to identify the list during API and SMTP calls.
  5. Find the new recipient list name in the recipient lists, and click Upload.
  6. Select the local file you prepared for the recipient list, and click OK.
    Note:
    • List files in the TXT and CSV formats are supported.
    • Match up information in the recipient list with variables in the email template. Information in “{}” represents the variables in the email template. Different fields are separated by “,”. Specifically, the email address is required, and other items are optional.
