Question

I want to use a list that I have set up to send a message to certain members of that list but not to others. Can this be done and if so how?

Answer

This is done using MML (Mail Meta Language) and the “Action” variable.

For example suppose you want to post to just the list members whose e-mail address begins with "s". To do this you would first have to enable MML by going to Post > Processing in the interface and where it says "Execute MML within posted messages" select "Whole Message" from the drop down and click
on update.

Next you need to post a message containing the following script:

<# if (left(RCPT, 1) != "s") { Action = 2; } #>
Welcome to our first customized posting!

Now only members whose e-mail address begins with "s" will receive the message.

Action Value
0 Continue the message (default)
1 Retry sending the message later
2 Never send this message.
Delete it from the queue so that we don’t try to send it again later. No automatic failure (or bounce) message will be generated.

Note: Customization of mailouts is only available with GMS Communication Server
