Separator

Use the Separator to separate the list of e-mail addresses by domains and then arrange the addresses within domain (sorts, randomizes, etc.).

To speed up noticeably the mailing process it’s advised to have your e-mail addresses sorted by domains. On the other hand, in some cases you may quite the contrary need your e-mails list be randomized. Each of these problems can be solved using the Separator.

Generally, the Separator can be used to arrange your list in one of the three ways:

Attention! Please make sure that your input file is a standard ListMotor lists (one item per line, sorted, no duplicates). The easiest way to avoid problems is to run the file through the Cleaner.

Processing modes and options

With the Separator you can use the following processing modes:

By Domain and Sort: Select this option if you need your e-mails list to be separated by domains, and the addresses sorted alphabetically within each domain. The domains will also follow in alphabetical order.

Example of the resulting list:

  • joe@aol.com
  • lisa@aol.com
  • info@berlin.de
  • joe@berlin.de
  • linform@berlin.de
  • news@berlin.de
  • manager@business.info
  • nick_127@hotmail.com
  • alex@some.net
  • alex@yahoo.com
  • jbrown@yahoo.com

By Domain and Randomize: Select this option if you need your e-mails list to be separated by domains, and the addresses randomized (placed in an arbitrary order) within each domain. The domains will still follow in the alphabetical order.

Example of the resulting list:

  • lisa@aol.com
  • joe@aol.com
  • info@berlin.de
  • news@berlin.de
  • joe@berlin.de
  • linform@berlin.de
  • manager@business.info
  • nick_127@hotmail.com
  • alex@some.net
  • jbrown@yahoo.com
  • alex@yahoo.com

Randomize Whole File: Select this option if you need your e-mails list to be completely randomized. Neither e-mail addresses nor domains are supposed to follow in alphabetical order.

Example of the resulting list:

  • linform@berlin.de
  • info@berlin.de
  • alex@yahoo.com
  • joe@berlin.de
  • joe@aol.com
  • jbrown@yahoo.com
  • news@berlin.de
  • lisa@aol.com
  • nick_127@hotmail.com
  • alex@some.net
  • manager@business.info

For the first two processing modes the Separator also offers some further processing options. Please note that with the mode “Randomize Whole File” these options are not allowable. The options are:

Kick out these bad domains: If you want to remove from our output file all addresses which belong to some certain domains, select this option and specify the file containing the “bad domains” list. Please note that the list must contain only “pure” domain names, without the sign “@”.

You can also specify the file to save the e-mails which were “kicked out” to analyze them later.

Reject domains having less than or equal to … occurrences: Select this option if you want to keep in your result file only the addresses which belong to the domains entering the input file that many times or more. You can also specify the file to save the e-mails which were rejected to analyze them later.

Create separate files for the following domains: Select this option if you need to single out into separate files all e-mail addresses which belong to some certain domains (for each domain a separate file will be created). Also specify the file containing the list of these domains. Please keep in mind that the list must contain only “pure” domain names, without the sign “@”.

Please note also that the suitable e-mail addresses will not be removed from the output file; they will be present both there and in the separate files referring to their domains.

Separate file for each country code: Select this option if you need to single out into separate files all e-mail addresses which belong to national domains (for each national domain a separate file will be created). Also specify the file containing the list of top-level national domains (country codes). By default, the list of top-level national domains (country codes) is stored in the file “country-domain.txt”, in the sub-folder “Config” of ListMotor’s main folder.

The file containing national addresses for one top-level national domain (country code) is named by the scheme “country-domain-<country code>.txt” (e. g. “country-domain-de.txt”). If there are no e-mail addresses for some country code, the empty file will not be created.

Please note that the suitable e-mail addresses will not be removed from the output file; they will be present both there and in the separate files referring to their country codes.
