General Questions: What is Database Cleaning?

Last Updated: Jan 26 2021 12:10 pm UTC

When you upload email lists older than 6 months, it is good to have database cleaning for the list before sending email campaigns. 

Database Cleaning

Database cleaning is a tool you can use to improve your delivery rates. The result of database cleaning is a good quality list of active email addresses. You can use third-party services to do that or we can clear up your lists of unwanted, inactive (hard bounces) contacts, before importing them into the Mailigen platform. Because we're sure, you don't want to damage the reputation of your domain, this is a highly suggested procedure.

When is Database Cleaning Important?

  • You've collected a lot of contacts (email addresses) from offline events;

  • You want to send your first email campaigns from dedicated IPs, but in the past, you've never sent an email campaign or sent it to your lists more than 6 months ago;

  • You want to send your first email campaigns from shared pools IPs, you have a big database (starting from 50k) and this is your first time sending campaigns;

  • You've decided to upload a 6month old (or older) email list.

  • You're sending a lot of emails in Eastern Europe

Note: Mailigen doesn't offer database cleaning as a service.
