Seeds are email addresses that can be used to monitor various activity, such as frequency of use, in an email list. By seeding a suppression file, SUPPRESS provides insight that will help you protect your Suppression Files from being monetized and maliciously spammed. If you receive this type of Alert, then there is little room to interpret anything other than that an Affiliate is sending mail to addresses on your Suppression File. The Alert will tell you what Affiliate the seed is associated with, and you will be able to view what was sent to the seeded address.
***Please note we redact the email address that received the hit in the Alert itself. This is to ensure that if you send the alert to your Affiliate, our seed email domains are not exposed.
What should you do if you receive a Seed Hit Alert?
Contact your Affiliate immediately to seek remediation and resolution.
