Suppression Services


Make sure your direct mail campaigns reach only the most desirable targets by using Melissa's Suppression Services. Our Suppression Services will identify the records in your list(s) that match to one or all of these suppression files: Do Not Mail; Deceased; Inmate; and Duplicate Check. By suppressing the records of those who can’t or won’t be customers, and duplicate records, you can better target your mailing and reduce wasted postage and production costs.


It’s easy to get started. You can upload your file directly to our Service Bureau for fast processing, or give us a call to get a quote. We offer affordable rates, quick turnarounds, and we also have a full automation option for processing 24/7/365 day or night.


  • Improve ROI when you stop sending mail to those who can’t or won’t be customers
  • Avoid embarrassment and tarnishing your brand by not sending marketing materials to individuals who have passed away
  • Reduce marketing expenses by eliminating individuals who have opted-out of marketing mail

DMA Suppression


We will flag the records in your list(s) that are matched against the Do-Not-Mail database. The DMA file is updated monthly and distributed four times a year. Names that are registered with the DMA remain on file for five years. The match percentage will vary depending on the accuracy and age of the data in your list. Required fields include: Address; City; State; and 5-digit ZIP Code™.

Melissa's List Suppression Services will flag records in your list that are matched against the Do-Not-Mail DMA database.
