About Suppression Lists

Suppression lists give you the ability to specify which email addresses should not receive a specific message.

You can select a suppression list when sending a message, and the message will not be sent to the email addresses on those suppression lists.

You can use any suppression list in any message, and can select several suppression lists for each message. If you have the Edit Global Email Settings permission, you can also create, edit, and delete suppression lists.
