Is there a way to exclude a segment from a mailing without first creating a new segment?

For example, we want to send to the US Marketing Region list, and exclude the Members-United States segment so none of our current members receive the email.

The way it looks we would need to make a new segment containing the entire US Marketing Region list and then add an exclusion to that segment to exclude all contacts with the member flag.

This seems like quite a bit of work to create the segment when we already have a segment of members that we just want to exclude from a single mailing.

Hi there -- Currently, the only way to exclude a specific group or segment at the point of send is to create a suppression list using the segmenting tool. In this case, you'll just need to copy the segment Members-United States to a group and then create a segment finding people in US Marketing Region and not in the Members-United States group.

We're also talking about creating suppression lists over here. I hope you find some of that information helpful!
