A ‘Do Not Mail’ list is a global suppression list present in every Maropost account. This list ensures that any contact present in it will not receive future communication from the Maropost account.
How does a contact get added to the ‘Do Not Mail’ list?
- If a contact gets hard-bounced, they will be added to the DNM list automatically.
- If a contact clicks on ‘Report Spam‘ from the footer of an email, they will be added to the DNM list.
- If a contact clicks ‘Never mail me again’ from the ‘Edit Profile‘ page accessed through the footer.
You can also add contacts manually to the ‘Do Not Mail’ list by importing a .CSV file into a ‘Suppressed’-type list, or by adding it individually to the list.

Is ‘do not mail’ list account specific or is it global to all accounts?
A ‘do not mail’ list is account specific (E.g. if a contact firstname.lastname@example.org is present in the DNM list of account ‘123’, then it will not affect the sending to this contact from an account ‘456’.
NOTE: When a contact is added to ‘do not mail’ list, they will stop receiving all email communications (normal campaigns, A/B campaigns, workflow campaigns, and test) from an account. To be able to send a contact content again, you must delete the contact from the DNM list.
To remove a contact from the ‘do not mail’ list, go to the DNM contact details page, and click ‘delete’.
