Oracle Dyn Email is being used across our organization, allowing us to email under a number of domains and departments. We are staying current with our site visitors and marketing targets with our system.
  • Easy to setup by unique group and approved senders.
  • Quick reporting.
  • Easy to retrieve lists to allow us to maintain our lists.
  • Setup has some nuances you have to get used to. Documentation is not laid out intuitively.
  • Still not sure if we have it fully optimized, it works and works well, but wonder if it could be done a little better.
If you have a higher volume of e-mail each month, with multiple departments, and lists. This is a strong performer in getting your email delivered. It is not an email creation solution, this is for delivery of composed emails.

Oracle Dyn Email Review: "We are very happy - don't plan on leaving anytime soon"

My organization uses the DYN email to send email for a variety of political campaigns from small local races, to statewide, and national organizations. All lists are from different sources and have different user needs. Our email use stays low in the non-election years, steady through most election years and then spikes quite high in the last 4 months of the election cycle.
  • Very good deliverability monitoring
  • Highly responsive support staff
  • Very easy to set up and integrate with other services.
  • I did have some difficulty diagnosing some of the issues I was having with one major ESP
  • The user interface can be slow and is outdated
This platform is well suited for a large volume email sender with a dedicated ESP provider for formatting and database management. It is not a system used to manage a database or code emails.

A less advanced user would be happier in a MailChimp type system, but they would not have the deliverability that you can get with this system.

While there are a lot of systems out there and being experts with email we could identify many solutions, but due to the fact that we use Oracle and Dyn for several other solutions, adding in this solution was a no-brainer.
  • API Automation - Really simple API so that we could set up automation quickly. Our development team really appreciated that.

  • Post Send Intel - After the send, having detailed metrics is critical and this platform does that particularly well.

  • More Reporting - While Oracle Dyn does a good job of reporting, more details for advanced users would be better.
If you are comfortable with APIs and want a platform that is easy to integrate into your workflow, then Oracle Dyn Email is a great solution that offers IP flexibility and good reporting. However, if you are having data quality issues, you will need to find an additional partner to identify the toxic emails prior to hitting the send button.

Oracle Dyn Email Review: "It's a good option for mass e-mail delivery at a competitive price"

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source
We use Dyn Email to deliver both transactional and bulk newsletter communications to end users.
  • Easy to set up API
  • Basic reporting available
  • Advanced reporting and troubleshooting
  • More user-friendly portal for power users (easy to switch between subaccounts without losing information, direct URLs, better reporting visualization)
  • Simplified support ticket submission process (less manual input, like my e-mail address, etc.)
The tool is relatively well suited to send mass e-mail campaigns that require little monitoring and have a straightforward setup.

Less suited if there are specific edge cases or a complex setup. Monitoring and contracts with inbox providers are not very transparent/have overlaps. Delivery and reputation handling in this scenario do not have a clear owner.

Oracle Dyn Email Review: "Oracle Dyn - Good sending tool, reputation manager, not for marketers without heavy tech support"

Score 8 out of 10

Oracle Dyn is used to send email communications to our users, on the B2C side of the business only. It helps us keep users informed of announcements relevant to them on a daily basis. Engineering is the only team having direct access to the tool but marketing is involved as well in its management.
  • Deliverability monitoring
  • Management of email metrics and understanding of variations
It is a good tool to send email through engineering, just as a sending pipe. Not a good tool if marketing wants to have a platform to build templates and segmentation themselves.
