I am kind of new to Constant Contact. This is the first time I have created an email with three personalized details which are First & Last Name, Member ID # and Dues Paid Thru date. When I go to Preview all data is correct for the specific email address. But when I send a Test Email the data is not there. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you, Jim Burke

Hello @DarrellA65. Custom fields will not appear in test emails. For peace of mind, you can do a live send by creating a list with only your email address on it. From there, you can do a live send to that list to verify the fields are showing correctly.
