  • First column is entitled "Email", and has the recipient's email addresses 
  • Emails formatted correctly: all have domains, no spaces before/after
  • Column Names: Must be one word, no spaces ( e.g. "company name" will not be accepted, but "company" or "companyname" will)
  • Custom Column Names must be all lower case letters
  • NO duplicate email addresses 
  • remove columns not being used as a merge field 
  • File saved as CSV UTF-8 (Comma delimited) (*.csv)
