Deleting Contacts

It's simple to delete contacts from your email list, but it's also quite permanent. So be careful to only delete contacts that you want to permanently remove from your account.

When you delete a specific contact in your subscribers, you also delete all of the information associated with that contact (sending statistics, list organization information, etc.). This information can’t be recovered even if the contact is re-added to your subscribers. We recommend exporting a back-up file of your contacts before deleting.
