I need to create an RSVP list and suppress it out of my next email. I don't see anywhere to do that. Other services have that capability. Otherwise I have to go line by line and remove them. BRUTAL

Here's how I'd do that. I'd create a group A that I want to send the emails to and another group B with the emails to suppress. Then I'd create a segment C that has the group A but excludes group B. Now, you can send your campaign to segment C knowing that the addresses from group B will be suppressed. In the future, if you need to use segment C again, you can add email records to the send list and/or to the suppress and segment C will dynamically update. Does that help?

Hi there -- Josué is on the right track here! Let's first determine how those contacts have RSVP'd. Could you identify them by opens or possibly link clicks? If so, you can simply save those opens or clicks as a segment and then copy that segment to a group (we do this so that we can use that group in another segment). Next, you can set up a segment to find any contact that is in the original send group but not the new group (people who have already RSVP'd). This resulting segment would be only the people you want to resend your email to.

We also have a conversation going here regarding the ability to more easily create suppression lists. Please feel free to add your vote there, as our Product team is still gathering use cases from customers.
