However, there are 2 cases when changing the status manually is advised:

1. When your prospect sends you a message, asking to be removed from your database.

In this case, change the status to OPT-OUT. This status ensures that no emails will be sent in the future. Go to the chosen campaign, click on the status, and select OPT-OUT from the dropdown menu.


Let your prospects opt-out of your campaign by adding the unsubscribe link » to your copy.

2. When you receive an out-of-office reply.

In such a case, your prospect will be assigned the status AUTOREPLIED. You’ll see a red dot next to the To Check tab in your campaign. After clicking on it, head to the AUTOREPLY tab and decide what actions should be taken next. If you wish to continue sending, choose the date to resume. You can also change your prospect’s status by selecting one from the dropdown menu.
