You can download a copy of your GreenArrow Monitor seed list by logging into GreenArrow Monitor’s website, and selecting
Seed List from the top navigation menu. Send campaigns to the addresses in this seed list to monitor the deliverability.
If you have the ability, we recommend that when monitoring an email campaign, you spread messages to the seed addresses through the entire course of the campaign. So, for example, if there are
100 seed addresses and
50,000 recipients in the campaign, you would send a seed message every
500 real recipients.
If you don’t have the ability to do this in your software, then we recommend using a seed-list feature, or if you don’t have that, just adding the seed accounts to your mailing list.
From address combination will be used to determine what email messages will be grouped together as one “campaign” in the system. If you plan to re-use the same
From address combination for multiple campaigns (or use different
From addresses in the same campaign), then we recommend using a CampaignID to distinguish between campaigns.
