Send test email
Before sending your campaign, you should always send a test email to ensure that your design, personalizations, and links are all working fine. To send a test email:
- Go to the Send test email tab.
- Start typing your email address or one of your colleagues in the search bar.
You can add more than one email address.
- Click Send test.
You can also send a test mail from the campaign confirmation step. Watch the video to know more.

Here you can see how your email will render across different email clients and devices (AOL, Gmail, etc). Click on the thumbnails on the right to view the complete preview.
Preview as customer
With this option, you can preview how your email will look on desktop and mobile devices.
You can also use this preview to make sure your personalization placeholders in blocks and in the From fields are populated correctly.
To preview a personalized version of your email as a specific recipient, start typing an email address in the Recipient field on the right and select it from the list. Personalization and conditional display based on contact attributes will be displayed accordingly.
