In the recent Eloqua Summer Release, there were 2 new flags available with email groups that should not be used as they were released ahead of availability of a future email privacy add on:


  • The “Use Secure Channel” flags an email group as secure.  If this option is checked, emails will only be delivered to contacts who are part of this group via a secure communications channel.  This functionality will only work with an upcoming service pack add on. Customers are advised not to check this flag at this time as emails will not be delivered if the option is checked.


  • The “Require Opt-In” flag when checked provides the ability to flag an email group as requiring contacts to explicitly subscribe to the group in order to receive emails in the group.  If this option is checked, emails will be delivered only to contacts who explicitly subscribe to the group. Customers should not to check this flag at this time as this functionality is tied to a future service pack.

 

Remember, your emails will not be delivered if you check these boxes. Please do not use them at this time. These flags will be removed in an upcoming Summer Release Service Pack and we will update this advisory accordingly.
