Marketable & Deliverable Emails
Emails are validated for marketability and deliverability. Consider these fields when selecting emails for email marketing campaigns:
contacts.email_deliverable- The deliverability status of the email address. Email addresses are validated to determine deliverability for email marketing campaigns. An email is deliverable when we have been able to confirm that it is a legitimate email address and is deliverable.
contacts.email_marketable- The marketable status of the email address. Marketable emails are a subset of deliverable emails and are higher quality when sending email marketing campaigns. An email is marketable when it is known that the address is deliverable and the address is not present on the Do Not Email list.
Common examples of selecting emails for marketing campaigns.
Contacts: Email Deliverable:Yes
Contacts: Email Marketable:Yes
Data Axle owns a universe of emails known as non-marketable. An email is non-marketable if it's undeliverable, presents a reputation risk to the sender, or is suppressed.
Contacts: Email Marketable:No
Contacts: Email Deliverable:No

Multichannel marketing use cases frequently encrypt emails into a hash to anonymize data. The hash can be used for matching purposes without sacrificing email privacy.
Hashed values for both MD5 and SHA-256 are available for both delivery and matching:
contacts.email_md5- MD5 encrypted hash of the email address.
contacts.email_sha256- SHA-256 encrypted hash of the email address.
primary_contact.email_md5- MD5 encrypted hash of the email address.
primary_contact.email_sha256- SHA-256 encrypted hash of the email address.
