You may run into email list limitations with what a particular platform lets you export, or what data is available to start with, but whatever you can grab is definitely better than nothing. This data will allow you to target and segment your contact list to protect your inbox placement. The goal here is to identify contacts who engaged in the last 7 days, 30 days, 60 days, etc.
