Slow Test E-mails


Does anyone else experience slow or even never sending/arriving test campaign emails?

I have been waiting nearly 45 minutes for 3 test emails, and none are arriving.

I have already checked my spam folder several times.


Hello @AlexK281,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community! Test emails should be delivered no longer than 5 minutes after sending. You may need to check to see if your email address is bouncing or you may need to set up Email Authentication to make sure your emails get delivered to you. Thanks!
