Re: can i edit an email once it is sent?

Hello,

Once an email is sent you cannot edit the sent email but you can make a copy of the email and resend it with the changes. You have to copy your email campaign into a draft format so that you can make your changes and resend the email.

 

To copy an email click on ‘More” next to the email campaign you want to edit and then select 'Copy' from the drop down

If you are using our 3GE once you copy the email it will ask you to re-name it.  Give it an appropriate name and select save.  If you are using the 2GE you will need to go to the left top corner and edit the name under where it says ‘Customize Your Campaign’.  

 

Once the email is copied and renamed, make the edits you need to the email itself.  Make sure to change the subject line so that your readers know you have made a change to the email and schedule the email to go out.  

This FAQ goes into more detail: Copy from the Campaign List View.

I hope that helps you!

How do I edit an archived email that's already been sent?

There is a mistake in a dollar number within a CC newsletter we already sent. I need to correct it since we link our newsletters to our website.

Alison, I guess by now you have figured that this can't be done. I think we've all gone through this. I bet you'll be triple proofing from here out. Regards, Tony

Yep, I did indeed learn it cannot be done. Thanks for replying, though, Tony. Cheers, Alison

Can I change a sent email?

Hi.  I created a newsletter, sent it, and then realized there is a typo.  Is there a way to change this?  Hardly anyone has opened it yet?
thanks!

Can I change a sent email?

No. After it is sent it is gone from Constant Contact. The only change you can make that will affect a sent email is to change an image that you have hosted on your own. (Don't try this with Constant Contact hosted images). You can substitute on your hosting a picture of the exact same name, an preferably the exact same size. Anyone who opens or re-opens the mail after you make the change will see the new picture.

Can I change a sent email?

"...will see the new picture" - but not if the pictures allready are downloaded at recivers end. Outlook and many other mailprograms downloads mail and the entire content and dosn't ceck to see if anythings is updated/changed. So chances are that no one will ever see the changes (and most have show pictures turned off anyway)

No, once it's sent, it cannot be edited. However, you can copy it and then make changes to the new version.
