I am planning to give the Marketing Cloud Email Specialist Certification in a month.Any tips on where to start also Is there a way I can get like a Trial Marketing Cloud Org so that I could practice all the stuff.I also coudnt find a Trail for this.Am I looking in the wrong place??
I blogged about this exam's primary content and my experience a while ago:
I found the email specialist exam to be the easiest among other marketing certs (social and cloud consultant) so it shouldn't take too much time to prepare for it ( ymmv). If you focus on the topics that I listed in my post, you should be able to handle 80-90% of the exam content.
As far as a Trial org goes, you could always log a case with support asking them if it is possible to get one. My company already had one so I never had to arrange for it. To be honest, I never practiced anything hands-on and only went through the exact target documentation in theory. There isn't a trail for Marketing emails specialist content as far as I know.
Do google for other resources and make sure you skim through them before taking the exam. Good luck!
Is this on the road map?
I met a question in the marketing cloud email specialist release note. I'm not sure about my answers, so I posted this question to discuss with you.
Use case: After a send has been completed, marketer realizes that they have included an incorrect link on a secondary Call To Action (CTA) in their email.
Which is required to allow the link to be updated? (choose 2 answers)
A) Link Tracking was used on the send
B) The original URL included URL parameters
C) The email message is sent as a commercial send
D) The updated URL must be used for all recipients
To use the update job links after send, it must allow the Salesforce marketing cloud to track the click data, so I choose A.
Then you must search for the job in the tab "Tracking -sends" to find the job link to update, so I choose B.
I chose A and B to this question, do you have any other ideas?
Thanks in advance.
Figured this out. I ended up having to build a landing page with a SmartCapture Form that acts as a survey. Action 1 in the form processing steps unsubscribes the user and action 2 inserts their unsubscribe reason into a Data Extension. So far it's working flawlessly.
Pretty disappointing that Marketing Cloud doesn't offer something like this out of the box since it promotes itself as a solution for every channel and leader in e-mail.
You can also take Email 102: Getting Started with Data on-demand training on 3Sixty to learn how to manage subscribers, use Lists and Attributes, and use Data Extensions to manage data and to distinguish between List and Data Extension methods. ExactTarget also offers Instructor-Led Trainings on a variety of topics, including Data Extensions. Visit the ExactTarget Academy in 3Sixty to view upcoming training events.

Hey there! This is doable, but not directly via functionality in the marketing cloud application.
First thing is, don't put two MX records for the same domain. That'll just make it so you receive some replies and we receive some replies. Nobody will receive everything. Multiple MXes in DNS are made for "round robin" load balancing.
Instead, let's make that domain MX just to you, then you configure your mail server handle responses. We can stil use reply.email.domain.com for RMM while having email.domain.com MX to you and you handle mail to any mailboxes you configure at email.domain.com using your Exchange (or Postfix or etc.) server.
Without this, there isn't a way to capture mail to (anything)@email.domain.com; our mail handling system for this is only smart enough to recognize RMM-formatted responses and it discards anything else.
Feel free to email me at email@example.com and we can discuss in more detail and I can help you configure things if desired.
I recently had a server crashed which contained both files and exchange email data. The backup was able to recover the exchange databases and I was able to extract all user data except one mail box which has emails with attachments but no content in the body of the email. Esutil is reporting that the edb file is in a dirty state. Is there a repair tool that can correct the database that’s currently in a dirty state?
The exchange version is Exchange 2003 with service pack 2 installed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If you are including CAN-SPAM info in another way (hardcoded physical address, external preference center, external unsubscribe method, etc.), you can call Salesforce Marketing Cloud support to remove the CAN-SPAM validations, which will allow sends without the aforementioned substitution strings.I also wanted to go ahead and send some additional info about CASL here: http://www.degdigital.com/archives/4162
