Not Receiving Test Emails

I am working on a email campaign and I am trying to send out a test email (work place email) and it is not being received. As soon as a I click the "Send Now" button it gives me a message that it was sent. I looked in the junk mail and it's not there either. I tried sending it to a personal gmail and yahoo email and those did go through but I really need to be able to send test emails to my workplace emails. What possible could be wrong? Please help!

Hello @CarrieG65047,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community! We completely understand how important it is to receive test emails. Content in your email newsletter could be causing this issue. You can troubleshoot this by sending yourself a test of a completely blank newsletter with a default or generic subject line to see if that goes through to your inbox or not. If it does, then it is definitely your content that is getting caught in your security filters. You can also give our delivery team a call for more information. Thank you!

I have the same issue where the preview (test) messages are not being received in corporate email. They are received when sending to personal gmail.

Hi @JayS540

 

We're sorry to hear that! It's definitely recommended to send yourself a test version of your draft email campaign before sending to your contacts. If the test email doesn't arrive in your inbox you'll first want to find out if it was filtered to your spam folder. If it's not there either, please feel free to reach out directly to a Deliverability Specialist for more assistance. They can help determine if the email provider, your security program or even your server may be flagging or blocking your email and what to do.

Re: Not Receiving Test Emails

I am having the opposite problem. I work in a NASA office, and test emails sent to internal email addresses are reaching the inboxes, but none are going to recipients' private emails. I've tried several times, check spam folders etc. and nothing.
