Automatically Adds Unsubscribed Emails Tracked by G-Lock Analytics to the Global Exclusion List
When you enable G-Lock Email Analytics tracking for your message in EasyMail7, the unsubscribe process is done online and unsubscribed recipients are collected in your Analytics account. EasyMail7 can automatically add unsubscribes collected by G-Lock Analytics to the Global Exclusion List. The program does not send messages to contacts located in the Global Exclusion List. Plus, these contacts will be marked as “unsubscribed” in the internal groups.
Using automated emails in G-Lock EasyMail7 you can setup an email-based course for your contacts. For example, you can create a series of automated emails containing unique content and schedule the first one to go out immediately or in a few hours/days after the subscriber was added to your list or after any period of time has passed, the second – in 48 hours after the first one, the third – in 72 after the second one etc.

New Bounce Handler
The Bounce Handler in G-Lock EasyMail7 can automatically unsubscribe or delete bounce email addresses from internal groups, update external databases, insert and delete bounce emails from external databases. Plus, the Bounce Handler can now process unsubscribe requests and automatically unsubscribe contacts who sent you the unsubscribe request from your groups.
Easy Image Upload to Web Server
You can upload pictures used in your message to your web server directly from G-Lock EasyMail7. The program will then automatically replace local paths of the images in the message with the paths on the web. This helps you decrease your message size, increase the sending speed and ensure the pictures will be displayed correctly within the message. Plus, you save your money if you send using a 3rd party service for example Amazon SES where they charge you for data transfer.

Responsive HTML Email Templates
You can download the templates from the store and use them for your email newsletters. You can customize the templates as you like. Use the newsletter templates that come with G-Lock EasyMail7 to share how-tos, tips, and news of interest with customers.
Inbox Delivery Test
G-Lock EasyMail7 provides a relevant reporting of email campaign performance with seed-based Inbox delivery testing, spam filter and authentication testing, and delivery duration monitoring.
From the Inbox delivery testing report you can see how your message is treated by major Internet providers around the world and whether it is delivered to the Inbox, spam folder or blocked before reaching the recipient’s mailbox. In Gmail you will see if your message is delivered to the Primary or Promotions tab.
Spam filter testing helps you identify which filters are blocking your emails. You get a spam testing report from Postini and SpamAssassin. We also provide as much detail as we can squeeze out of them to help you troubleshoot.
Sender authentication testing checks your authentication each time you send an email to our seed list. You will be able to see on an individual email campaign basis whether your email is passing DKIM and SPF authentication.
Delivery duration tracking is also essential. It helps determine if there is an issue with ISP throttling. Rather than blocking your emails altogether, some ISPs will delay the delivery of emails when the volume passes a certain threshold. This can be particularly harmful for time sensitive promotions or important transaction emails.
Using RESTful API you can integrate G-Lock EasyMail7 into your business process. For example, we have a web client developed with the use of RESTful API.
Free Trial vs Paid Editions
