The following ESPs will add an additional unsubscribe link regardless to any custom unsubscribe link you used in Ongage:

  • Benchmark

  • BlueHornet (is now Mapp Digital)

  • Elastic Email

  • SendGrid (can be disable via Sendgrid UI under their Apps Subscription Tracking)
  • SmartFocus

    • In the case of SmartFocus on a per ESP connection basis, Ongage can disable the enforcement of the unsubscribe link, by not calling the createUnsubscribeUrl method. So if a client asks to disable this, it is possible.
  • Teradata (aka eCircle) 

    • Here too on a per ESP connection basis, Ongage can disable the enforcement of the unsubscribe link so if a client asks to disable this, it is possible.

Which ESPs require Field Mapping and Which Don't

ESPs that require field mapping

The following ESPs require that the fields you setup in your list in Ongage will be mapped to those in the outbound ESP.
(info) Note: You only need to map those field that you plan to use as dynamic fields inside the email message. Typically you only need to do field mapping once when you setup the ESP, and on those less frequent occasions, when you introduce or remove a dynamic field from your email message.

  • BenchmarkEmail
  • BlueHornet (is now Mapp Digital)
  • Elastic Email
  • OpenText
  • Teradata (formerly eCircle and is now also Mapp Digital)

SMTPs & ESPs that DO NOT require field mapping
