I need to send an email to a single contact. My use case is user is clicking on forgot password on my system. Therefore, I need to send an email only to him/her. What is the endpoint for that? I cannot find on the docs.

Hello RuhsarK,


Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact API Developer Support. My team is here to assist outside software developers with questions about building into Constant Contact's API.


Our system isn’t really configured to send individual emails, as Constant Contact is built primarily for sending bulk emails to lists of contacts, and sending a large amount of emails to lists that only contain one contact could potentially make viewing campaign reporting and statistics cumbersome.


You could add individual contacts to their own lists and send individually with that method, however, since it sounds like potentially sensitive information would be sent in these emails with your use case, I would also mention that Web Page URLs are generated for each sent Constant Contact email, which would not be ideal for sharing sensitive information such as usernames or passwords since these emails could potentially be viewed by parties other than their intended recipient.


Please have a look and let us know if you have any other questions!
