Apologies for such a basic question, but I'm using Emma for the first time and have to get an email out tomorrow:

If I send one mailing to multiple lists in one go, and someone is on more than one list, will they get the email multiple times?

Oh, we love questions around here. Happy to help!

Emma checks for duplicates in your lists at the point of send. So, as long as you send to those two groups at the same time, Emma will only send the mailing to each contact once. If you send to the first group and then later send to the second group, Emma won't know to compare those two groups for duplicates. Make sense?
Yes indeed. Thank you!
