I have Data Extension where for some reason there are two emails (Email1 data type is text, Email2 data type is EmailAddress, DE imported from salesforce report, whereas in the salesforce both the fields type is Email), I am not sure If I use this DE to send emails, which email will be used to send emails.

Case 1. If Email1 relates to Subscribers on Subscriber Key.

Case 2. If Email2 relates to Subscribers on Subscriber Key.

Also, I have seen Contact Id (salesforce id) being used for subscriber key as well.

Any help please ?

  • Just tested email received at Email2. As Email1 data type is text so no email to this address. Jun 12, 2016 at 21:23

You should change Email1 field type text to email. Salesforce sends email to email field type.
