My question comes from the fact that when sending an email with a Data Extension as the source, Email Studio pulls up the related existing Subscriber Key in the All Subscribers list to get the email address that's actually going to be used (as expected).
However, since our SubKey identifies the customer, he/she can have multiple email addresses pointing to, say, specific products—which in turn have their own attributes—owned by that customer.
If we were to do product-specific sendouts by making a Filtered DE for example from the mother DE, how do we force Email Studio to use the different emails (and by extension, the different attributes)? Could this be done without creating a separate SubKey for each product and/or creating an AdHoc SubKey for that sendout?
So it's not so much that I'm looking for changes in a customer's email address, capturing them, and updating the All Subscribers list, but rather having multiple valid unique email addresses for a single, customer-level SubKey.
Here are some links that might be related:
- Override email address in marketing cloud (has no answer, but OP's comment-reply mentioned something of note: "To all: There is another solution more straightforward: theres a business rule that just needs to be activated to achieve this behavior.")
- Is the email in All Subscribers preferred to the one in the sendable Data Extension? (talks more about a subscriber changing his/her email address)
Any insight is very much appreciated!
