Normal

The <normal> element is where you enter the user database filter identifier for the delivery, if you have decided to use this option.

The <normal> element is:

  • A child of the Filter section and you can use Use <normal>, <test> or both

  • Positioned within the <filter> section of the XML instructions file, after the <test> filter element, if used

    If no <test> element is used, the <normal> element is the first entry within the <filter> section.

Use

If you use the New_recipients section, any <normal> filter element is ignored. The delivery is sent to the recipients listed in the Recipient element, or the appropriate CSV file. See Filtering and added recipients for more details.

0 special value

If you set the the <normal> element to the special value of zero (0), the delivery is sent to all recipients in your user database, with only the base filter applied.

Caution:

We recommend that you never to use <0>, because it is potentially dangerous. If you want to send a delivery to the whole database, you should create a filter that selects all recipients. This prevents changes to the base filter affecting your deliveries. We may remove support for the <0> value in the future.

Example:

    <filter>
        <normal>1</normal>
    </filter>
