Delivery Reports

Lyris can send the list administrators of a mailing list regular progress reports on how each mailing is doing. The Delivery Report indicates when the message was attempted, how many members received it, and when the next retry is scheduled (for the remaining member)

You have the option of also receiving a detailed SMTP report addendum to the delivery report, where every member who could not be sent to is detailed, and the reason for each inability to send the message is given. This SMTP report addendum is about 10 lines of text for each member, and so for large lists can be extremely long.

You have the option of setting Delivery Reports to go out at these intervals:

1) after the first delivery attempt of each message

2) after the last delivery attempt of each message

3) after the first and last attempt of each message

4) after each delivery attempt of each message

The delivery reports go to all the members of a list who are set to "receive admin mail".

Here is an example of a delivery report:
