The content of your Send Test emails should look the same, but a few things will be different:

  • Your merge fields will not pull actual data (Example: Hi [Contact First Name],). This includes your Company Information in the footer.
  • Your subject line will have "Email Test" before it.

Best practices: 

  • Use the Send Test button while working on your template to see how your design and formatting looks, not to see the final product.
  • Add yourself as a contact in your database, then send the email to yourself as if you are a recipient of this email. (Note: If you send a Basic email to yourself only, the company information block in the footer¬†will not populate. You need to send to two or more contacts to view the company information footer).
