Create and use a test list

The TEST functionality lets you send test emails during the creation of your campaign.

These test emails are sent to your TEST list, whose contacts will be able to receive, preview, validate the design and content of your email before the actual launch.

In this tutorial we will teach you how to create and use this TEST list.

1. Creating the TEST List

Before continuing: The email addresses that you want to add to your TEST list, must first be existent in your normal contact lists.

To begin creating your TEST list click on the "Settings" tab on the left sidebar.

Then select "Set up" under "TEST List".

In the field, enter the email addresses that you want to use for testing your emails. Make sure to write only one email address per line (press "Enter" on your keyboard each time you write an address to skip to the next line).

IMPORTANT: The email addresses that you add to your TEST List must already exist in your contacts account.

When you are done inputting the addresses, click on "Save".

2. Using the TEST List

The TEST functionality is part of the Step 2 of your campaign creation. Once you are done designing your email you can head to the bottom of the page to send test emails.

You can either send a test email to your own address, a manually selected address (existent in your SendinBlue contacts), or send a test to your whole TEST List.


After sending your test email, you will receive a Test Email Report telling you the outcome of your tests.

Use this functionality to review your emails, and make changes until everything is looking and working the way you wanted.
