Test Email not Delivering to Primary Acct Email Address

Dear Users -
Just a cold beginner here confused a bit - seems campaign TEST action is NOT sending the test email to my primary account email address (a hotmail.com address) when I use it as a test SEND TO address.

Is this part of the CC system?

Test does send to a second personal email address, something totally DIFFERENT than my primary registered account email address.

I need to be able to send weekly emails to a growing number of contacts as I get them loaded, but not sure if I can trust the system is functioning.

Anyone ever see this problem before????

Please reply


Hello @MarketerL5370,


It sounds to me like your emails are not sending to a specific email address. If that is correct, please make sure to check your spam to see if it may have landed in there. You will also want to reach out to our Delivery department for some additional help with this.
