Is it possible to do a resend ("resend to new contacts") of mails via the API?
For our purposes we create a new event-specific mail with a specific mailing list (a la "List London", "List Belfast"...) about every two weeks. Now in those two weeks every day people are added to that particular list, and we do a resend. I am working on automating the upload of the new daily contacts, but would like to also do the resend automatically. Sadly, I have not found a feature like that in the API? Is this accessible somehow?
So its not about automatically sending the first mail, just for the ~ 13 resend mails following that mail.

Hi Dave, thanks for the answer, does help.
Just to make sure (as _two_ lists are involved):
- lets say contact "John@example.com" has been on list A and opted out of list A ("do not mail")
- my server uploads "John@example.com" to list B (via bulk upload, together with others)
Will "John@example.com" end up on B or not? In other words, is "do not mail" global across all lists or just for the one list where John opted out? Because, if it is really global than I can skip the program-logic to detect if he opted out and just trust that your server will filter him out (would make things easier for me :) )

I want to ask this question specifically to the constant-contact-team (because it might concern cc's usage-terms ;) ).
I have constant-contact-list with people who subscribed to specific events. Some of them indicated interest to receive extra information (corresponding to a "generel news lists"), and I want to add them to that extra list. The thing is, we don't have a check if people who subscribed to the first list entered their own email, so if someone unsubscribed (or even reported spam) we would not want to annoy them by subscribing them to the second list.
Numbers: opt outs < 1 %, spam reports ~ 0.1 %, total numbers ~ 1000 per list.
My question is how best to do that.
possible way A - bulk upload?
1. just upload the contacts who signed to the second list via bulk upload (http://developer.constantcontact.com/doc/activities)
Problem: people who unsubscribed from the first list would still be uploaded to the second list, or am I mistaken?
possible way B - individual test and upload?
2. see which contacts have signed out (is that possible?)
3. upload those contacts individually or bulk-upload who did not sign out.
What do you think? What should be my way forward?
