With Mandrill we are making use of Mandrill’s meta property system to tag each outbound email with an email id, a variation id, the lead id it’s being sent to, and the nature of the email (weather or not it’s part of a batch send or is it an automated email routinely sent to new subscribers or is it just a test email the admin sent off during testing.
These meta tags help us call statistics from Mandrill for entire email campaigns or statistics just on a single variation’s performance in an email campaign.
What I’m looking to find out from SparkPost is:
- Does SparkPost have a meta data system like Mandrill? Or is it purely Tag driven analytics.
- Are there limits on how much meta data an email can hold? Are there limits to how many tags an account can create?
- If SparkPost does support meta data, can performance statistics be called via meta data searches over a given time period?
Here’s a record of our interview with Chris Wilson from SparkPost’s Slack Community:
I think with this bit of Information and a promise form SparkPost’s CEO to never do to us what Mandrill did to us is a good sign that it is safe to begin development.
