Be able to send "One-off" e-mails

Be able to send "One-off" e-mails

It would be very helpful to add a feature where you can select one contact to send an e-mail to. So when you create an e-mail and go to send it out, instead of selecting a list, there would also be an option to just select 1 contact. 


This concept could also let you select multiple contacts if need be without having to have a specific list created. 


Would love to see this as a feature!

There needs to be a way to enter just ONE name in to send an email. I have a referral program and personalize a thank you to them. I don't want to create a list for every note I send out. I am a small business and it is important for me to personalize information to my existing clients.

@JulieU1 Are you creating a new email each time you send a thank you to your clients, or is it the same one you have to send to 1 person each time?


I'm wondering if our quicksend feature might be helpful for you:


This feature will work if you're trying to send an email that was already sent to a single contact.


If that's not what you're trying to do, I'd like to understand better.  Where would you want to enter in one name to send to?

Great feedback @MichaelR612,


I'm going to open this up for voting. 


I know this isn't exactly what you're looking for but it might be helpful.  Once you have sent a campaign you have the ability to 'quicksend' it to individual contacts from your Contacts tab.  Here are instructions on how to do that in case it's helpful:

I realize that your platform is about mass emails,however, I do a lot of individual emails as well. I see that you have a quick send option, but I find that to be a lot of extra work and time. I hope that you may consider providing an email option on the profile page other then the quicksend.

Thanks for submitting your idea. At this time we will be marking this as closed due to the number of votes it has received.

I would SO love this. I work at an HOA and, along with mass-emails like our monthly newsletter, I often find it necessary to use Constant Contact for 'official' notifications (i.e., you're using too much water, the previous owner of your property wasn't left the mailbox keys we signed out to you, etc.), so I can see whether or not the emails are opened/viewed (kind of like an electronic certified letter).

Going through all the trouble to make the letter only to get to the screen that demands I send it to a 'list' is endlessly frustrating...I have to save, go back out, make a new list, put the *one person* in it, save it as a separate list, and then send the letter to that 'list,' even though it's only one person! Then it makes managing the lists annoying, time-consuming and interruptive, because they become bloated with obsolete one-offs, etc.

Me too - how difficult is it to just send one personalized email??? I like being able to send a mass campaign, but often I need to create a classy looking email and send to one person. I really don't understand why this is such a difficult feature to add. I see notes going back 4 or 5 years with people asking for this. Also - we are NOT talking about quick send because with quick send, you have to have already emailed a campaign for it to show up on your list. A Draft email does not.

I can't believe this doesn't exist. Please Constant Contact, do something about this!


I want it too!!!!!

Occasional Visitor

Why doesn't this exist? Yes its bee a request by many since more than 5 years back. Please add this Constant Contact, its a major part of small businesses "constant contact" strategy for smaller and more high ticket type businesses. Will need to find another solution otherwise.


Much needed.  Any updates on this?

Occasional Organizer

Still would love this feature... HELP US, CONSTANT CONTACT, YOU'RE OUR ONLY HOPE!

Frequent Visitor

Yep. Definitely want this. Who has time to create a list for one person? Or even just a small number of people that I'll never email all at the same time again. I vote yes.

Occasional Organizer

I have posted this before, but I REALLY wish there was a feature to select single contacts to send e-mails to. I don't like having to have everyone be a part of a "list".


Any update on this???? The ability to send one or just a "few" emails would be great.




Hi @MarkT39383. We do not have an update on this as emails are scheduled to send to lists. Right now, the workaround is to add a single contact or a few to a list or to send to a group of tagged contacts. However, if the email has previously been sent, you can use our Quicksend feature.


Dear Constant Comment,

I'm a new user as of today. I would also like the option of sending one, personalized thank you email at a time.

Please modify your system to allow me to send one email template to one person at a time. I should be able to select an email template and select one person if I prefer. Thank you
