The test profiles allow you to target additional recipients who do not match the defined targeting criteria. They are added to a message's audience to detect any fraudulent use of your recipient database or to ensure the emails arrive in the inboxes.
A test profile contains fictitious contact information, or contact information controlled by the sender, that can then be used in a message in the following contexts:
For sending Proofs: the Proof is a specific message used to check the message before sending the finalized delivery to recipients. A Proof test profile is in charge of checking the delivery, with regard to its content and format. See Sending proofs.
For Email rendering: the Email rendering test profile is used to check the way in which a message is displayed according to the message inbox that receives it. For example, webmail, message service, mobile, etc. See Email rendering.

A proof is a specific message that allows you to test a message before sending it to the main target.
Recipients of the proof are in charge of approving the message (its content and form). They are defined in the Test profiles. For more on this, see Managing test profiles.
Select a proof to access its summary. For an email, if you have selected the Email rendering option as the proof type, the Access email rendering icon is displayed on the right of the proof label. See Email rendering.
Depending on the comments from the people who receive the proof, you may be asked to modify the delivery's content. Once the modifications have been carried out, you have to restart email preparation then re-send a proof. Each new proof can be accessed using the Show proofs button.
You have to send as many proofs as necessary until you have finalized the content of your delivery. Once this is done, you can send the delivery to the main target and close the approval cycle.
