When email messages are sent by a LeagueApps administrator, they can be tracked to determine who is receiving the messages and who may be having deliverability issues. These tools allow you to communicate with your members with greater certainty that they are receiving important messages — and if they aren't receiving why that may be.
Email Address Statuses
As a LeagueApps admin user, you can view a member's email address status in two places: the members report and a member's profile.
Email Address Validation
When a new member is created or updated on LeagueApps, the member's email address is validated in real-time. This prevents a LeagueApps account from collecting invalid email addresses and will improve your email deliverability.
Status via Members Report
To use the members report, go to Manage then click Members. Once there, use the Email Status filter to see a list of your members by email status.
Status via Individual Member
To do this by member, search for the member and enter their profile. If LeagueApps is encountering an issue delivering emails to that member, you will see a status alert in orange text on the left-hand side.
Members can resubscribe themselves by following these steps. However, some suppressions may required the help of LeagueApps Support.
Email Status Overview
Any email address that has one of the following five statuses will not receive emails from LeagueApps.
|Unsubscribed||The member has chosen to unsubscribe from emails sent by LeagueApps||The member should resubscribe via their dashboard. Click here for steps.|
|Reported Spam||The member has marked an email sent by LeagueApps as spam.||The member should unmark emails from leagueapps.com as spam.|
|Email Bounced||The message could not be delivered due to a non-existent email address or issues with the recipient's email account such as their mailbox being full, their server being down or the message being too large for the recipient's inbox.||Contact LeagueApps Support here. If the issue returns, the member should contact their email provider to have leagueapps.com added to a "safe sender" list.|

|Unverified||The email address is tied to a non-existent account or unknown domain.||Have the member create a new account with a different email address. Once that is done, merge the accounts together.|
Email Message Tracking
Email messages sent from LeagueApps to a valid email address will be tracked, and LeagueApps Admins can view details on the message's deliverability. The LeagueApps messaging tool eliminates the transmission of duplicate email addresses and ensures that each parent in a family account receives a message. In addition, LeagueApps offers advanced email tracking to see who your messages were sent to and their delivery status.

We do our best to ensure your messages are consistently delivered to your members. However, sometimes the message itself cause an email provide to flag your message and prevent its delivery. Emails with attachments, links, text in all caps and other attributes can cause an email provider's spam filter to block your message.
