Question that came up during a recent discussion with a customer: How long does subdomain configuration typically take via control panel?
You can always trigger the subdomain delegation process from Control Panel. It has a sequence of steps and there is one step before the operation is complete which is 'Deliverability Audit', this step is manual and can take 1-2 days as this step involves Adobe team to check and ensure all the setting on the domain are ok. Once this manual check is complete only then we mark the entire process of subdomain delegation as 'Complete'.
One other question that came up post webinar: is there an easy way to identify workflows using the "keep interim results option"?
Control Panel does help in tracking WF best practices through the card "Performance Monitoring" -> "DB Performance" -> "Storage overview" click "view all" to view workflows and deliveries that are contributing to the temp storage. As part of this view you can choose WFs or select "Temporary Table" to view all those workflows that are contributing to it. Which essentially means, "Keep Intern Results" on the workflow is 'ON'. Here is a screenshot...
Thank you for your question. Yes, Control Panel supports AC hybrid deployments. Please make a note that not all functions and features of Control Panel are available for these because of the nature of the deployment. Here are the supported features.
Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions today!
This question was originally posted by Community member @jyotiyadav3 :
When I run a delivery, delivery to a recipient email address fails and the error message which I get is 'Unreachable'. Failure Type is 'Ignored'. I want my address to be set to quarantine or any other status(as 'with error', 'blacklisted') once the count of error reaches 5. However, this address never moves to Campaign Mangament --> Non Deliverables Management --> Non Deliverables and Addresses
What changes I should do to make address as quaratine, if error count increases beyond five.
There are certain bounces that are not considered permanent and won't be added to quarantine. This is common for dead domains that are no longer set up to receive mail. It's best to suppress those domains because they can eventually become spam traps and begin delivering again but have a negative impact on your deliverability.
Here is some documentation on managing the quarantine table. If you need further help, I'd have to reach out to a more technical resource.
One thing that customers frequently want to know about is that what are the most common deliverability issues faced during the holiday/peak season? It would be great if you can share some insights on that.
Thanks in advance!
I typically see a couple recurring themes.
1. Spikes in sending volume
This can cause issues with certain ISPs. They monitor you email volumes and a sudden spike is viewed as a spammer tactic and they will send email to the spam folder. There is no immediate fix for this type of reputation issue and it can take time to resolve. It's always best to ramp the volume up gradually. Almost like a mini IP warming.
2. Expanding targeting to reach inactive audiences
This can cause deliverability issues if you have a larger number of these bounce, have a higher rate of complaints or as mentioned above - it creates a larger volume that you typically send. I would recommend a reactivation campaign prior to the peak season and only send to those that still show an interested in the brand.
Here's another community question that was originally posted by Community member @steveh12479324:
Is anyone utilising Google's AMP format for email in the multipart message of the email (in addition to the familiar multipart HTML and plain-text format) in Adobe Campaign?
If so, any experience of setting this up? I.e. Does Campaign allow this, steps involved in setting-up of the additional format/mime-type in the platform, any deliverability issues encountered etc?
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
This is a fully live feature for Adobe Campaign Classic! I haven't personally worked with any customers that have implemented it but here is the documentation.
Just wanted to know exactly what should I be monitoring to identify whether I have an email deliverability issue or not?
If you see any issues with these metrics, you’ll want to work to remediate as soon as possible. Depending on the issue and the longevity of the issue, it could take weeks or even months to fix.
One can also leverage the "verify domain" function provided by Control Panel on the subdomains delegated, this helps one to check the health of the domain and understand any issues on the delegated domain. As this function does audit for any deliverability issues in the background.
