Will Constant Contact automatically dedupe when sending an email?

I want to send my email to more than one email list. There may be common contacts in the lists. Does Constant Contact automatically dedupe the list (and any that have unsubscribed) prior to sending?

Hi @VickiB534,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us through the Community. Our system will automatically dedupe the lists if the same contacts are spread over multiple lists. Also, any contact that unsubscribes will automatically be removed from all lists and will be placed within the Unsubscribed status. They will not be able to receive any more mailings until they resubscribe. I hope this helps. Let us know if you have any further questions.

Hi there - I used an app to import contacts in and now (due to an error with the app) there are multiples of the same contact in a single list. I thought Constant Contact would automatically dedupe this but I have heard from our contacts that they are getting four of the same email. Do I need to manually remove each duplicate? 

Hello @SharonF743 ,

 

Taking a look at your contacts we couldn't find any dupes in any of your lists or in the active contacts. We did find a lot of contacts that were very similar, but did have at least some kind difference (i.e. a missing letter or missing period). The incorrectly spelled email is the most likely to bounce, which might make it easier if you send out an email to a list that includes one of these incorrect email addresses. Otherwise you'll want to go through your contacts and manually remove them.

 

If you have some examples of customers who claim they've received duplicate emails, feel free to send them as a direct reply to the automatic email you'll receive from us mentioning your @, that way we can do some more investigating.
