This is a Mailing. It is the result of submitting a Mail Job entity. It contains information about how the mailing was specified, and also the results of the mailing. The entity has a
status attribute, indicating if it is ongoing or finished.
Mail jobs that were submitted for processing at a later date/time will have a status "Scheduled" until that time.
Mailings in progress
The mailing will have the
status attribute set to
CurrentlyExecuting in this state. The
progress sub-tag of this entity is output while the mailing is running. The information here can be used to build a progress bar. The
ping_after field represents the time you should wait before polling again. Failing to observe this recommendation can result in rate limiting responses being returned.
Mailings that complete successfully will have
Completed as their
status attribute. Mailings that fail will have
CompletedWithErrors as their
Suspended and Cancelled mailings
A mailing can be suspended or cancelled using the Poppulo Web Application. Please note that there is no way to cancel or suspend a mailing using this API. Mailings will have a
Cancelled in such cases.
