Hello!

Okay, this is going to be a super basic question, but I just cant make it work.  I’ve used Email by Zapier before and didnt have any trouble, must have been doing something different.

All I want to do is get Zapier to send me an email, a notification.  The zap is actually connected to Mailchimp, and each time a new subscriber submits the subscribe form, I want an email notification.  This is super basic!

But, I cant complete the build of the zap, because the email always fails the test.  Zapier tells me;

“Failed to create a send outbound email in Email by Zapier

You can only send emails to yourself when testing the ZapierMailAPI”

So what am I doing wrong?  Come on, point out the obvious for?

Hi @jd7300 

Good question.

The error message states: You can only send emails to yourself when testing the ZapierMailAPI

Try turning the Zap ON and testing live.
