  • Hi @EazyE thanks for the suggestion... but requirement is NOT to exclude particular Subscribers... Instead, I don't wish to send that particular EMAIL to any one.... a kind of EXPIRING the email. Mar 3, 2022 at 5:11
  • @VishalKumarCV - do you simply want to stop certain emails in the journey from sending? Does the team in question not have access to Marketing Cloud? Mar 7, 2022 at 20:55

The actual requirement was to EXPIRE certain emails in SFMC. Once they are marked as EXPIRED, those emails would STOP sent out from any way [SendFlow, Automation, JB etc]

So we came up with below approach,

  • Create an DE [with field 'EmailName'] to store the Names of the Email which you wish to EXPIRE.
  • Place this exclusion script in every Email send activity.

RowCount(LookUpRows("ExpiredEmails", "EmailName", emailname_)) > 0

Note: Though the email get excluded, the contacts would still injected to journey. And only the Emails would NOT be sent.
