If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.|
Create a static segment of the contacts you'd like to delete
If you do not have criteria that will target your desired contacts:
Click 'View Contacts' after selecting the segment
Select all contacts by checking the master box in the left-most column listing of contacts
Confirm the total number of contacts you would like to delete.
- Remove the # selected contact(s) only: This option deletes all contacts with the checkbox checked.
- Remove all # contact(s) in this view: This option deletes all contacts within the segment you are currently viewing.
These contacts are no longer in your account. To remove them from a list, please visit: How To: Bulk Remove Contacts from Mailing List(s). You can always re-add deleted contacts by re-importing them.
