Using phplist for while now I got questions about cleaning list.
As keep clean and reactive base allow to get best delivery rate I which to clean it.
But I don’t how if phplist already include function for this.
How do you clean your list of inactive contact?
- I mean when a subscriber never open or react to any mail for 1~2 years?
How do you clean your list of soft bounce?
For example, when you get 10 “Mailbox full”
Do you re-try after while?
Do you definitfly suppress it, or just desactive it?
(of course I’m not talking about the hard bounce, which I already clean)
Does anyone know how to unsubscribe or export inactive contact?
Hi, I have done stuff like this before but I have always used spreadsheets. I export click and opens data and then use that to make new lists or exclude lists etc.
You can do something like
- Go though your campaign stats and export the clicks and opens data. Make that into your new clean list
- Send a mail using the invite plugin to everyone else, using the new list as a list exclude
- that will blacklist everyone who is not in the new list and only unblacklist them if they respond to the invite
this is a good method cause you may have subscribers who read your mails with images blocked.
Just check with @duncanc if the invite plugin works with list exclude (I know I asked him before but I always forget, I assume it does though)
