When you use our test feature, a message is sent immediately upon your clicking the Send Test button.
If you don't receive that message immediately, it may be that your ISP (email service) is experiencing a delay in placing it in your inbox, something some services do routinely and intentionally.
If you don't receive the test message after a reasonable amount of time, it may be that your message is being blocked by your service provider.
What Causes It To Be Blocked?
Typically, this is as a result of the "From" and "To" addresses for the test message matching.
For example, you may have set the From/Reply Address for your list to be email@example.com and now you're testing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What Can I Do?
In order to get that message through, you can take two approaches:
- Ask your ISP to whitelist AWeber.com's mail servers for all email
- Send to a different test address other than the From/Reply
