Do Salesforce’s mass email limitations hurt your business?
One of the most basic techniques for marketing and sales is utilizing email lists to contact customers and leads. Salesforce allows businesses to send mass emails for newsletters, press releases, promotions and other items. However, there are limitations with the Salesforce email capabilities. These limitations were intentionally designed to prevent abuse that could label Salesforce as blacklisted or spam.
The limitations primarily focus on the number of emails that can be sent within a day based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Your Salesforce email limits vary depending on various what sort of emails you are sending from Salesforce:
- Daily Mass Emails Limit in any organization is 5,000
- Limit on Workflow Email Alerts is 1,000 per day
- You can email only 2,000 leads or contacts from a List View
- You can manually select up to 200 contacts or leads from a contact or lead list view
With these email limitations Salesforce users are often left with the task of splitting up emails into multiple groups for multiple days, and then managing what emails were sent and when. This can be particularly challenging when one group needs to send out a privacy notice for legal reasons while another group needs to announce a new marketing campaign at the same time.
