Introducing Wildcard Suppression List Compatibility


Wildcard suppression lists are now supported inside of ReachMail. Along with the usual purpose of a suppression list, a wildcard suppression allows you to suppress addresses on a variety of wildcard factors. For example, if you have an email going out to recipients and you want to suppress anyone with a Yahoo email address; you can type @yahoo* as a address in your suppression list. This not only would prevent any from receiving it at yahoo.com but will also suppress anyone using yahoo.co.uk, yahoo.fr, yahoo.co.in, etc.

Here’s a list of possible formats that can be used in a suppression list:
*@yahoo.com – will omit all yahoo.com addresses.
*@yahoo* – will omit all yahoo domains (yahoo.co.uk, yahoo.com, yahoo.co.in, etc).
noreply@* – will omit all noreply addresses.

Moving forward, customers can now add domains and addresses to a single suppression list into a wildcard suppression list and will be able to simply apply the suppression list without first having to select how it should be applied. You can read more on the wildcard suppression here or read on how to convert your current list to this new format here.
