Viewing the Dedup Report

The Dedup Email Job Report shows jobs that have been deduplicated and sent to a Mailcaster for mailing. Deduplication refers to the process by which duplicate email addresses are removed from a broadcast mailing list, ensuring that an addressee doesn’t receive the same email more than once. This is particularly important if you are sending a broadcast email to more than one audience (since the same addressee may appear in more than one audience). The deduplication process also removes from the list addresses with Do Not Email specified.

Note: When a large mail job is sent from Online Marketing, it is typically sent by multiple mailcasters. The Online Marketing Dialog Execution Server creates a parent mail job with a status of P_Queued. When mailcasters begin to send the mail they change the status of the parent job to P_Assigning and create child jobs with the status of Running. The Dedup Email Job Report only lists entries for parent email jobs such as these, as well as for small mail jobs.
