This article describes how to edit an Address Book, in cases including:

  • you need to add small amounts of data at a time
  • you were not able to import data and need to add all new data

    • It is best to be as consistent as possible so your filters will be applied consistently. For example, if you want to filter for Language Code in your campaign, you might want to specify the filter as English . But filtering for English will not match any entries using the ISO code en .

Authorizing Domains

Before you can send emails in a campaign, you must prove you are authorized to send emails to that domain. For details, refer to Domain Authorization.

Domain Authorization Fields  

When editing an address book, you can see the following read-only check boxes, located just below the Email Address and Active fields at the top of each record:

  • Domain Authorized – Indicates whether the domain was authorized using the Domain Authorization tool. When the campaign goes live, it will only send emails to Address Book entries with authorized domains.
  • Ignore Unauthorized Domain – Indicates whether the domain was set to be ignored using the Domain Authorization tool. This allows an Barracuda PhishLine Administrator to see addresses affected by ignored domains despite the fact that the alert is being ignored.

These fields support viewing, sorting, and filtering to allow easier maintenance of records affected by unauthorized and/or ignored domains. For example, you might want to use the filter in the left panel to

  • Find only Address Books with Domain Authorized = True, to display a list of recipients to which an email will be sent.
  • Find only Address Books where Ignore Unauthorized Domain = False, to display a list of recipients to which an email will NOT be sent.

You might also choose to find Ignore Unauthorized Domain = True to see whether unauthorized warnings will be displayed. Note that this does not affect whether emails will be sent.
