Reverse (Postal) Append File Format

Create one file* of your entire list of email addresses.

[*Note: Standard contracts include one file in and one file out. Any stitching and/or splitting of files may be subject to a nominal fee. Please direct any questions to your Account Executive or Project Manager.]

Format the list as a tab delimited text file (*.txt) with a header row. Please do not include quotes or other text qualifiers. The following fields are required unless otherwise noted:

  • UNIQUE-ID
  • EMAIL ADDRESS

Please use the following naming convention for your file:

[FreshAddress job number]_toprocess_[record count].txt
Ex: 1010_toprocess_500700.txt

Excluding brand fields or any other extra field necessary to process your job, your input file may contain up to 3 additional fields (which will be returned with your results for no additional fee).

Your input file should not contain any unnecessary sensitive information of any kind, such as social security numbers, credit card numbers, financial information, birth dates and medical information. Files that contain any such data will be destroyed upon receipt.

FreshAddress will return your results in a tab-delimited text file with the following fields:

  • UNIQUE-ID
  • EMAIL
  • FIRST NAME
  • MIDDLE NAME
  • LAST NAME
  • ADDRESS1
  • ADDRESS2
  • CITY
  • STATE
  • ZIP

NOTE: Improperly-formatted lists will be charged a Data Formatting Fee and may cause delays in processing.

If you have any data formatting questions, contact the FreshAddress List Processing Team either via email or at 617.965.4500 x 222.
