Blocking certain contacts from receiving mailer


Blocking certain contacts from receiving mailer

I am about to send a message to about a 1000 contacts in my list, but I don't want a select few (about 15 contacts) to receive this particular message. But I want them to receive later messages, and so want them permanently in the list. How do I temporarily block just a few contacts from receiving a single message?

Thanks for your help.


Hi @KarlF68, in order to maintain your existing list you can copy the list and then remove those contacts that you do not want to send the message to from the new list. Then, on the scheduling screen, you can send to the newly created list. You can delete this list afterwards if you no longer need it.
