-We recommend eliminating any unnecessary data columns from your file.
-For a mailing list your file must contain email addresses but others fields are optional and only need if you plan to personalize your email or segment your list using the data.
-You may want to review your list and remove any extraneous characters that may interfere with the import process.
-You can try using a find and replace function in Excel (or similar application) to eliminate any extra spaces, quotes, tabs, or commas.
-Be careful to work with a copy of your file so as not to accidentally delete valid data from your list.
