To do this, select the CleverReach account in the sales cloud and create a black list entry.

Special cases during synchronization
a. Synchronization of e-mails with special umlauts (eg: ä, ö, ü) in the domain
Domains with special umlauts, we call them "Umlautdomains", are automatically converted by the Salesforce SalesCloud, according to Punycode regulations, into ASCII-compatible code as soon as you store them under the corresponding lead or contact data No difficulties in the synchronization process.
b. Synchronization of same Leads and contacts
Campaign members are considered as "equal" when they have the same e-mail address. In case you synchronize a Lead and a contact with the same e-mail address, the contact will always overwrite the Lead. If you synchronize 2 Leads or 2 contacts with the same e-mail adress, the older contact/Lead will always overwrite the younger one. Older means in this context that the contact contact/Lead was previously into Salesforce
c. Synchronization of existing campaigns does not work
When synchronizing campaigns that were subsequently added to CleverReach, the fields to be synchronized must be "global attributes" on the CleverReach page. Group-specific attributes can not be processed in the current version.
