Confirm successful email send?

    I had a couple of send emails result in DNS lookup failed errors (as shown in the SentItems table. I resubmitted and they flowed ok. Is there a way to confirm emails have sent successfully within TA or would I need to write an automation to query the SentItems table looking for errors?

        Hi Mark

        Apologies for the delay on this one.
        Querying the sentItems is going the be the most conclusive way to check for this currently.
        You could also perform a DNS lookup as an action immediately before the email action, then potentially retry the lookup if it fails, or at least log the situation to the automation log so you can more easily see it.

            We added a condition to If blocks - If %var% Is A Valid Email Addres With MX Record

            This will check an email address has a valid MX record. This can be done prior to the Send Email action.

                Excellent. Yes I saw that and smiled yesterday when I saw it in the beta. Really great to see how Parker responds to requests, it's refreshing.
