Contacts on Multiple Lists

I would like to eliminate (delete) a large contact list, but would like to keep the cotacts that are also on other lists. How is this accomplished?

Re: Contacts on Multiple Lists

Hi @FredT1

Thanks for reaching out and that's an important question when managing your email lists! You can definitely delete an email list but keep any contacts who might be on other lists in your account. From the Contacts tab, click on the drop-down menu next to the list you want to delete and select Delete:




Choose to "Delete the lists and contacts" and then click Delete List:




This option deletes the list and all of the contacts on it from your account. If any of these contacts are on other lists, they'll remain in your account and on those other lists. Please let us know if you need any further assistance!
