Deleting instructions needed for v.11.0

I need to delete 100,000+ "opt-out" emails in a group.  How do I do this?

Hello Gramey2000,

Welcome to the Sage ACT! Online Community!

 

The answer to your question depends on several things... the main being: How to identify the appropriate contacts within the database?

 

Are the contacts already identified and in a Group?  If yes, right click on the Group name and select Create Lookup. 

Depending on what you want to do, you can then either delete the contacts (in bunches - not all at once), or use the Edit > Swap Field option to swap the data with a blank field (possibly 'User 10' field).  This would keep the email address within the database but not accessible for sending emails (merge or blast).

 

Note: Always create a backup before making large data changes (File > Backup > Database).
