Step 4: Explore the Test Email Feature

After saving changes, you can explore the Test Email feature. It allows you to test and fine-tune your email notifications before sending them to the required persons. This function is intended to ensure that your emails are sent properly.

This feature is very helpful when setting up your email notifications for the first time or when making changes to the email templates or text. By sending test emails, you can see how your emails will look and make sure that all of their parts, like text formatting, images, links, and personalization factors, are working properly.

Moreover, by testing the delivery process, you can find and fix any possible deliverability problems, like content triggers that may trigger spam filters.

That’s it. We hope you find it easy to set up the Email Notifications Addon from Analytify on your WordPress site.
