Actually send the email (using the send button)
If you want to truly see how the email behaves, we advise you to actually send the email to fully see the functionality. You may ask why, and it's because the send preview is more useful when you want to preview the email on different devices. On send preview, some links may not be replaced and you won't know if they actually work (some email clients won't even show the link), but on actual send you will be able to see the campaign entirely.
Furthermore, we also recommend sending the campaign 'to a segment of ' internal and external contacts, meaning send the test campaign to your colleagues and to some other people if you can, this is just a better way of knowing if something is wrong with the email. And of course after you are done testing you can always duplicate your campaign and send it to your contacts.
After all, we have many email clients, and sometimes they behave differently, and testing is a key component when it comes to the flawless looking campaign!
