Before choosing the lists, please pay attention to “Only new contacts”

  • For those who left the checkbox active - Mailcheck will be validating only NEW contacts, if it’s your first session, then nothing to worry about, it will validate all contacts. However. In case the new contacts were added right after the previous session and you still remain the checkbox “Only new contacts ”active” in this case the new emails will be checked ONLY
  • For those who left the checkbox inactive - and it’s your very first session, nothing will happen, however, in case it’s your repeated session, unticked checkbox means your new contacts + previously validated one will be processed
