More than one default address for test emails

More than one default address for test emails

I would like to send to more than one test email address

I want to add someone to the proofing in addition to Marie's email. How can I have that pre populated? Thank You.

Unfortunately at this time there is only one address that can pre-populate into the test send box but this is great feedback for the future. Currently the contact email address on the account will show in the left box.


Hi Mike,

You can type in up to 5 email addresses in the preview and test box to send the email but only one can be prepopulated at this time.

When I hit preview, the pre-populated recipient of the preview email is always the primary contact email. Seems to me it should be the email address of the current user. We have several user accounts and it's inconvenient to have to always change it and/or frustrating when forget to change and the preview does not show up.

The president of the organization must also approve any eBlast that goes out but his/her name is not the default and must be added every time.... your making multiple default names/emails would save us a lot of time

Thanks for posting about this!

In the editor we use ("old"), my email address autopopulates for test emails. Yay!

In the New editor, it chooses my boss' name, so I have to retype my email address. Not sure why this changed between the old and new editors? Minor, but it adds to the list of things we wish were different in the new editor (which include HTML editing capability and adding tables).


It would be great if there were an option to select from a few different email addresses when sending the test email. I usually do a few tests to check for errors before I share a copy with my boss for her review, so my first test only goes to my email address. Once I've corrected errors, I'll send her a revised preview. It would be great to have the option to select one or multiple email addresses from a list when sending the preview, so I don't have to manually enter an email address depending on the stage of review I'm at. Campaign Monitor has this option, and it's really helpful.


It would also be great to flag that the preview email is a preview, and not the live send, just to avoid confusion.

1. be able to attach either a list or a batch of emails to a test.  I usually have to send out at lest three test to a batch of three different recipients.  

2.  Be able to establish multiple "default" recipients.

3.  Some sort of tracking on tests sent and to which recipients.

Hi CC,

I tend to send test emails to the same colleagues all the time (to managers for approvals). It'd be great if the software was a bit more intuitive, remembering previous email addresses that have been used. Then I wouldn't have to type out the same addresses each time or go to another tab to copy and paste email addresses into the address box. Could save a lot of time as I use this function so regularly - it's tedious!




Actually, you can use your browser auto-fill to prepopulate with all 5 email addresses. I've been doing it for years!

Please provide details on how to set browser for auto-fill addresses on test emails in Constant Contact. Typically I use Chrome. I send out drafts to 5 email addresses/various clients and it's a bit of a chore to type them in each time I send a draft.

Thanks, JT
