How to preview my message before it's sent to Subscribers.

By using the Approve Each Message option, you can list additional email addresses to receive your message prior to it being approved. This allows you to see how your email will look when received at various ISPs and in different email software, 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.
