Re: The contact list 'XXXX' does not exist.

Hi Raju,


I responded to your email about this, but in case anyone here is following along, this error means that the list ID you're specifying while adding a contact, 1, doesn't exist in the account. You can make a GET call to to see the lists and list ID's in the account. You will most likely see lists with ID's that are 10 digits long.
