In the Raiser's Edge, you have records that are marked deceased.
You are sending an email message, using a Constituent list from the Raiser's Edge, and the list contains records which are marked deceased. You notice the email message still sends to the deceased records.
Alternatively, you utilize Newsletters, and there are some subscribes who are linked to The Raiser's Edge. You may have a linked subscriber, whose record is marked Deceased, but they still receive the Newsletter.
How to exclude deceased records from emails.
The Deceased flag within The Raiser's Edge does not exclude recipients from email message or newsletters. You will need to also mark the box for Requests No Email, under the Bio 1 tab on the Raiser's Edge record, which will exclude the records from Email Messages using Constituent Lists or Newsletter subscribers who are linked between NetCommunity and The Raiser's Edge.
