Adding a SPAM testing account

Adding a SPAM testing account is not mandatory to run a SPAM test in SALESmanago system. You can create one if you for example wish to run a test to your own email account. Find out how can you run a SPAM test from SALESmanago >>

In order to add an account for spam testing your messages, you need to have a mailbox, that will later be connected to SALESmanago by going to

Email Marketing => SPAM Testing Accounts => Add new account tab
