I cannot get this dynamic sender profile to populate a dynamic Reply-to email address using a field from a non-sendable data extension (something that should be easy but its turning out to be really difficult). I understand that the Sender Profile is evaluated before the email, so the ampscript from the email cannot be used.

Therefor, I have attempted to create a content block and put this ampscript in it:

Set @language_email = language_code
Set @Replyto_table = "Ashley_Reply_To"
Set @replyto_match = "fromReply"
Set @replyto_translated = Lookup(@Replyto_table, "language_code_reply", @replyto_match, @language_email)


Then I retrieve the content block using this script in the Sender Profile:


This is not working and I am not sure what to do! Help!! enter image description here

  • @A.Malone what error you getting for me its working this one %%=ContentBlockByName("Ashley_Replyto_Contentblock")=%% where did you use this one ?

  • Hi @pkharries. The email is just not sending through at all. They all have status "Cancelled" in the send log

When using ContentBlockbyName you should provide full path to your content block, for example:

%%=ContentBlockbyName('Content Builder\Scripts\Ashley_Replyto_Contentblock') =%%

You can copy location in content builder:

P.S. I would suggest to use ContentBlockbyId or ContentBlockbyKey in case someone will change location or rename your block.

Updated note: Make sure you save this content block as a Code Snippet!!! Otherwise you will have problems:)

  • Its a miracle!!!!!!! It finally works!!! And the greatest part is that Salesforce Help told me it isnt possible to have this information in a section data extension:) High five to us

    Use the feedback function in your support case and tell them that there is a solution the support didnt know about. It will increase their effectivity. Jul 3 '18 at 14:21
