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

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. Commented Jul 3, 2018 at 14:21
