Overview

In case FTPZIP executes a Massive Send, the personal data of subscribers listed in the Recipients.csv file are imported in MailUp Account Database. 
Email messages are sent as a common mailing executed using the MailUp Web Application.

When FTPZIP works in this way:

  • Subscribers listed in Recipients.csv are subscribed to MailUp Account Database complete of all personal data.It is a real Data Sync.
    For this reason in Recipients.csv you can only can add up as many dynamic fields as your account allows, comply with the formatting policies mentioned at the page CSV File Format .
  • Personal data of the subscribers listed in Recipients.csv file can be used as Dynamic Fields in the newsletter if the use of Dynamic Fields is enabled for the account and the Newsletter.
  • Imported Personal Data can be used in the filter and segmentation mechanism of the MailUp Account.

ZIP Archive Structure

Description

Depending on which Operations Mode is indicate in the Settings.xml file, you can enclose in the ZIP archive different kinds of files such as:

  • An xml file, named Settings.xml. It is the only file that must be present in the ZIP archive because it will be used to determine the behavior of FTPZIP
    For a general view of the XML structure see here). 
  • A CSV file, named Recipients.csv. It contains the list of recipients that will receive the newsletter (for a general description see here).
  • A HTM file, named Markup.htm. It contains an email message in HTML format (for a general description see here).
  • Images that the HTML refers to. They are the list of all file images described in Markup.htm.
  • Attachments to be sent with the campaign, if any. Ti is a folder that contains the files that will be attached to the newsletters.

Use Cases

In case of the ZIP archive contains some files not necessary for the operation mode described (i.e. operation mode is send but ZIP archive contains same data of a full request), they will be ignored and the operation will be completed.

In case of the ZIP archive doesn't contains all files necessary for the operation mode described (i.e. operation mode is full but ZIP archive doesn't contains the files to create the newsletter), the operation won't be completed.
