How do I preview my message before it goes out to my list of subscribers?
If you are using the Approve Each Message option, then you can list additional email addresses to receive your message, prior to the message being approved. This allows you to see how your email will look when received at various ISPs and in different email readers, prior to approving your message for your regular subscribers.
If these additional email addresses are not added to your list, they will not receive the message once approved. This allows you to use these additional addresses purely for testing.
To learn how to turn on the Approve Each Message option, please refer to this post:
