Newsletter redirection issue

edited March 28 in Firebox - Proxies

Dear all,

We receive several newsletters via email that we want our users to have access to but they direct us first to a link that meets the "web and email marketing category" that we block. For example:

Newsletter from financials time:

email sent from [email protected]

If we click on the "to view online click here" button it directs to:

http://track-ft.sparkpostelite.com/f/a/hVz6fM5sJ8aO9JRmjqNSJQ~~/AAAAAQA~/RgRed7EQP0SpaHR0cDovL2VtYWlsLnBlcm1hbGluay5mdC5jb20vZW1haWxzL2V5SmxiV0ZwYkNJNkltWm1PVE13T0RRMU1EZzRNV0ZoTkRrd1lqWmpNekl5T0Rsak4yVmpOamRrSWl3aWRISmhibk5oWTNScGIyNUpaQ0k2SWpaa01UazBaalE0TFRKaE5qVXROR05tTXkxaVltSXhMVEUzWmprd05qZG1NV0ZpWlNKOVcIZmludGltZXNCCgAfJCyVXKg7BudSEGQuemVwb3NAemV5YS5jb21YBAAAAAA~

that is not permitted as it meets the "web and email marketing category"

but IF it was permitted it would redirect you to:

http://email.permalink.ft.com/emails/eyJlbWFpbCI6ImZmOTMwODQ1MDg4MWFhNDkwYjZjMzIyODljN2VjNjdkIiwidHJhbnNhY3Rpb25JZCI6IjZkMTk0ZjQ4LTJhNjUtNGNmMy1iYmIxLTE3ZjkwNjdmMWFiZSJ9

that is normally permitted

Any idea how we could bypass such scenarios?

THX IN ADVANCE GUYS

Comments

  • You can add Allow exceptions to WebBlocker.
    Not sure of adding one for track-ft.sparkpostelite.com/* would be acceptable to your site or not.

  • Thx Bruce for your answer. The issue is that this time was sparkpostelite.com but they may use another domain next time. How this could match all possible changes?

  • No idea without more examples.
    Perhaps track-ft..com/ would work.

    You have to allow the initial web access in order for the redirect to happen from the destinaion web server.
