Email Sending Errors in Outplay

In this article, we will discuss the common errors faced while scheduling emails.

Outplay allows users to connect mailboxes such as Gmail, Office365, Outlook, Zoho, and SMTP/IMAP-supported mailboxes.

Emails are scheduled through Outplay but eventually sent out through your mailbox.
Some of the common errors faced are mentioned below in this article and how to resolve them.

Users can navigate to Outbox to view their failed emails and the reasons behind them.

1. No Email 


If the prospect added to the sequence doesn't have an email associated with them, the email will fail.

3. Template variable missing

When adding prospects, sometimes, some fields are missed out, due to which when these prospects are enrolled in a sequence that has custom variables used in the templates.

As the variable is not present for the prospect information, the email will fail.

4. Email Listed in Blocked Domain

If Admin has added domain abc.com to the blocked domain within outplay, any prospects with that domain abc.com will be blocked for sending the emails out and this will be shown under the failed emails.
