Thanks Procrastinator! Your advice re: the best practice of sending to all lists at once makes sense, and I can see that when accessing resend options. I'll use excel for my current situation and send to all lists at once in the future.
With the "CC Analysis" tool you can subtract lists to do the trick for you. The "CC Analysis" tools was created to be used for analysing across multiple emails and have "adding","Subtracting" and "excluding" capabilities between lists more: http://www.mitdigitaleoje.dk/CCAnalysis/CC_Analysis.html
When I'm sending to only certain people on a established list, I start by making a copy of the entire list into a new temporary list. In the new list, I delete those people "only from this list". Then when I send the email I send to this new temporary list. Wishing you success.
I have the same question regarding sending a message to people to remind them to register for our conference. I don't want the message to go to those who have already registered. I can create a new list of the email addresses of the people already registered. Can I somehow tell Constant Contact to send it to everyone who is NOT on the list of people already registrered? I don't want them removed from my database, but I do want to exclude them from a single mailing our to unregistered people.
I have a mailing list that I would like to send to all the members that are not already in another list.
What you could do is merge the original list into a new list, effectively making a copy of the original list. Once the list is merged, go into the new list and remove the contacts you would not like to mail to.
If there is a large amount of contacts that need to be removed, you can create a file that only contains the contacts you want to remove from the newly merged list and then upload those contacts to be removed from that list.
I hope this helps,
I am not exactly sure I understand what you are saying....
My final goal is to have members of one list click on a link that will have them opt-in to a different list. They need to choose to go there. But I only want to sent the email to those who are not already in the that list.
Maybe this will help more...
Email to List A ---> do you want to go to List B? (If member of List A is already on List B do not send the email)
Does this help?
Thanks for your time.
What I am suggesting is removing the contacts that are already in list B from list A. Merging list A into a new list would allow you to remove the contacts that are already in list B without affecting the original list A. Merging a list creates a copy of the original list.
