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?

The error message states: You can only send emails to yourself when testing the ZapierMailAPI
Try turning the Zap ON and testing live.
Yeah, there you go! Annoyingly simple!
Thank you very much for your help!
