Users in your HubSpot account who have Edit permissions for marketing emails can send a test version of a marketing email to themselves or a team member before you send out the actual email to your contacts.

You can also send a test email using the HubSpot mobile app.

To send a test email:

  • In the upper right, click Preview, then select Send test email.
  • In the right pane, click the Choose one or more recipients dropdown menu to select recipient(s) for your test email.
  • (Optional) Click the Receive email previewing dropdown menus to preview the email as it will appear with specific personalization options.
  • You can also select the Send plain text version checkbox to send the plain text version of your email that excludes any styling.
  • Click Send test email.


Why do test emails have Marketing Email Preview Send as the display name?

All test emails are sent from with a display name of Marketing Email Preview Send, to protect your email deliverability rates. When you're done testing and you send the email to your contacts, it will be sent with the From name and From address you've specified.
