CSV Files for Recipient Import

CSV files for importing recipients of the monthly report must meet certain requirements.

A list of recipients for the monthly report can be imported from a CSV file (see Importing Recipients from a CSV file). To ensure that an external CSV file containing recipients of the monthly report can be imported into the Control Panel without errors, rules regarding the file extension and content structure must be observed. The CSV file can contain both email addresses of Control Panel users and email addresses of external mailboxes.

Rule for the file extension

  • The extension of the import file is .csv. Other file extensions, such as .txt or .docx, will not be accepted.

Rules for columns and rows

  • The CSV file contains only one column.
  • The first row contains the column name. The column name can be freely defined.
  • From the second row on, the CSV file contains a recipient’s email address in each row.
  • The rows end without any punctuation sign.

Rule for the formatting of email addresses

  • The email addresses are correctly formatted (according to the pattern "local-part@hostname.top-level-domain”).
    Important:

    Incorrectly formatted addresses are not considered during the import.

Rule for duplicated entries

  • Duplicated entries do not affect the processing of the CSV file, but should be avoided.
