If you exceeded your account’s campaign or daily test email limit, you could schedule and send the email as a regular campaign. We recommend creating a test email list; this list can be used when testing the appearance of your email.

Here are additional reasons for the non-delivery of your test emails.
  • It’s possible that test emails may end up in your spam folder since test servers are not regularly used like our email-sending servers. If this happens, simply move the email to your inbox and mark it as “Not Spam.”
  • Content in your email may be triggering Spam filters, make sure you are following best practices.
  • Ensure your inbox firewall or filters are not blocking Benchmark emails. You can whitelist our email domains to prevent emails from being blocked.

  • Your domain may have been blacklisted, although rare. You can check the status of your domain using free online tools like MXToolbox.


Please do not use the Test Email feature to measure your email deliverability. Instead, schedule and send your email. If you’d like to learn more about how to improve your email deliverability, please click here.
