What is a suppression list?

Uploading A Suppression List

A suppression list is a list of email addresses that you want to exclude from ALL campaigns. Typically they may have unsubscribed from previous campaigns or may be emails that have bounced. Adding subscribers to your suppression list prevents any future emails being sent to them.

How are subscribers added to my suppression file within Espiromail?

If you want to add a list of subscribers:

If you have used other email marketing systems before you will be aware of what a suppression list is and how important it is to import it into any new email marketing system. To add these to Espiromail visit ‘Lists’ and click on ‘Upload Suppression List’:
