Short link construction

The system builds short links by combining a unique short link domain and a unique link identifier for each link that you add to a communication. The short link domain is unique to your hosted email account. The system maps each short link to a full length URL that you specify when you add a short link to a communication.

The following diagram illustrates the structure of a short link.

The system constructs short links when it assembles the message for transmission. When message recipients click the short link, the system tracks the link clicks and forwards the responses to the Deliver system tables.
