ALL FEATURES EXPLAINED: All our features/functionality explained in detail - no app-specifics.

Mailrelay is a web service for email marketing and a proprietary software for sending mailings, newsletters and analysis of email campaigns.

Below you'll find detailed information, specifically for Mailrelay integrations:

Supported Mailrelay Integrations

Authorizing Mailrelay

To authorise, we need your API Key and Subdomain.

If you already authorized Mailrelay account(s) in the past or in any other PieSync integration, you'll be able to skip the first part of the authorization and choose from your CONNECTED ACCOUNTS.

[IF] Supported Conditions/Filters

  • In Group
  • Is / is not Banned
  • Is / is not Bounced
  • Is / is not Unsubscribed
  • Status (Active, Inactive, Disabled)
  • Field values (INCLUDING CUSTOM FIELDS)
  • Already existing in the app your sync with

[THEN] Supported Actions

  • Add to / remove from Group
  • Update field values (INCLUDING CUSTOM FIELDS)

Default Field Mapping

Depending on the other app you're syncing with, you'll see a number of standard Mailrelay fields being mapped by default. For instance, in a connection with Google Contacts, the default field mapping looks like this:

You have the ability to disable default mappings and reuse them in the custom mappings section.

Customizable Field Mapping

You can custom map your Mailrelay Custom Fields and any additional standard fields that aren't included in the default mapping yet. Bear in mind a mapping between two fields can only exist if the types of fields are compatible, and the particular compatibility will determine the direction of the mapping as well. More information on Customizable Field Mapping here.

Additional Options

Syncing Deletions

Currently, there are no Mailrelay integrations on the PieSync platform that support our deletions sync.

Syncing Unsubscribes

In connections between Mailrelay and some marketing tools we support such as e.g. MailChimp, you are able to sync unsubscribes one-way. When a contact gets unsubscribed in your marketing tool, we add the tag 'PieSync Unsubscribes' to that same contact in Mailrelay. You will be able to review this segment first before taking any action in Mailrelay too.

The availability to Sync Unsubscribes/Deletions is app and connection dependent. If the box (screenshot above) is not there to tick, it's simply not possible. We need to be able to detect unsubscribes/deletions on one side and at the same time be able to create add the tag 'PieSync Unsubscribes' or ‘PieSync Trash’ on the other side. More Information on Syncing Unsubscribes here or on Deletions here.
