Problem with reminder email

Please see below at the subject line in the reminder email for one of my campaigns - Looks really bad.

Re: Problem with reminder email



Thank you for bringing this to our attention!  I can absolutely see why that subject-line would be more than a little unacceptable.  I do see from the subject that it wasn't the direct email that was sent out, it was our message letting you know that the email had been sent.  Sometimes special characters (like apostrophes or any foreign characters) can cause some unusual problems, similar to what you've posted.  The good news, is that in the vast majority of cases, those extra characters aren't visible when viewed on a standard email client, as they are caused by various other automated systems misreading the subject-line.

If you open your account, and send yourself a test email of that campaign (either at your work address, or a home address) do you still see the same added characters?  If not, then you can rest assured that your clients did not see the extra characters either.  If you're still seeing it on the test email, please forward the campaign name and a reference to this post, to us at social_support(at)constantcontact(dot)com and we'll look into exactly what's breaking that subject line.
