Removing Email Addresses

Professional Version Only

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

If you send an email and receive a "bounce" back indicating the address is not valid, you can use the "Remove Address" window to automatically search for the member and/or group records containing the invalid address, move the address to the Comments field, and even precede the new comment with text like, "Not Valid:"

Note: MemberTies does not receive email itself. Any bounce back messages will arrive at the "reply to" address in whatever email software you normally use.

The following fields are available:

Specific Address - a specific address to find and remove

Addresses in File - if you have a text file containing a list of invalid addresses (one per line), click the Browse icon and choose the file. All addresses in the file will be processed.

Move to Comments - controls whether the found address is copied to the Comments field of the Member/Group record.

Additional Comment Text - additional text to add to the comment, preceding the email address. For example, if this field contains "Not Valid:", the comment stored on the record will be similar to "Not Valid: bad@address.com"
