Once the sending is finished, go to GlockApps and click the View Report button.

2. Testing via Proxy Email Address

This is an alternate testing mode which makes the testing process easier.

This mode eliminates the need to create a test manually and copy-paste the id string in the message. Moreover, it provides with the ability to select the email addresses for the test individually, not by groups like for the manual test.

To test an email message via a proxy email address, you need to create a sending account with the GetResponse SMTP settings in GlockApps.

Go to Settings -> SMTP Accounts in your account in GlockApps.

Click Add Sending Account and enter your From information and the SMTP settings from GetResponse.

Select the mailboxes and click Save.

Copy the proxy email address associated with the sending account.

Go to your account with GetResponse.

Create a new list and add the proxy email address to the list.

Test GetResponse email deliverability

Send the message to the list with the proxy email address.

GlockApps will create a test in your account and re-send the message to the chosen test email addresses through your GetResponse SMTP settings.

Go to Inbox Insight -> Reports in your account with GlockApps to view the delivery report.
