Hi! I created a campaign and inserted a greeting set to the recipients first name. When I just preview it, it comes up correctly, but when I sent a test email to my husband, the greeting says "Hi Julie" (which is me) instead of his first name. Just wondering if I'm doing something wrong.

Thanks!

Julie

Hello @julieshreve,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community! That is a great question. You are doing everything right! When you send a test to yourself or to someone else, your name is always going to appear because your name is all the system can find in a test email. When you send this email out live to your contact list, it will then update to everyone's name that has been added into your account. Thanks!
