Research Participation for Dataforce | Remote SA ( R54 per mail)

We are currently looking for people to participate in our Opal project.

What is the project about?

The purpose of this project is to collect corporate emails which you received from businesses or organizations to help improve anti-spam and email filtering technology. A corporate email usually includes the business name or brand of a company or business, e.g. example@transperfect.comexample@yatra.com, etc.  

The emails should not be older than 17th of October 2020 and should be only in English.

Task description:

To participate in this task, you will have to upload the emails in  .eml or .msg  formats from your computer using our DataForce platform. Please note, forwarded emails will not be accepted, the emails should have been received by you.  To be eligible for payment you must submit at least 5 emails. You may submit a total of 50 emails, 5 emails per email type.

We will be accepting emails from two different categories: Time-Sensitive Emails and Transactional Emails:

Time-Sensitive emails: An email sent to an individual recipient where delivery at a specific point in time directly influences the value of the message. These are usually emails that users prefer to see in their inbox so they can act within a certain time window. For example, a meeting invite from a company, a power outage in your house on a specific day sent by your network provider or a sudden change in flight terminal on an coming trip sent by the airline

There are eight Time-Sensitive Email types:

  • Travel Updates 
  • Utility & Service Notices 
  • Calendar invites 
  • Calendar updates 
  • Reminders 
  • Digital Signature 
  • Lease & Property notices 
  • Financial alerts 

Transactional emails: An email sent to an individual recipient where the email is more specific about a recent transaction, financial statements, shipment deliveries, receipts of purchases and travel bookings. These are usually emails that don’t require immediate action. For example, the purchase order from Amazon, the travel itinerary of the coming trip or the cancellation of a Netflix subscription.

There are six Transactional email types:

  • Travel/Reservation confirmations  
  • Order Confirmation  
  • Order Receipt  
  • Shipments  
  • Bill Statement / Payment  
  • Bank Statements/ Updates 

Regardless of the email category, the emails must have the following attributes:

  • Be in eml or msg format
  • Subject line should consist of a minimum of 4 words
  • Sender email address should have a corporate domain name. Emails from @gmail, @yahoo, @aol, @outlook, @icloud, and other similar domains will not be accepted
