From the mind of Brian Haukos, Marketing Support at High Monkey:

The other week I spent some time in constant contact building an email to send out to let people know about a live event we were hosting! After spending some time building the email, making sure all the links worked, spell checking the content of the email and designing the look and feel I was ready to send the email off!

After confirming the email was good to be sent I was brought to a screen where I was tasked with selecting the individuals that I wanted to receive the email!  After making my selections I clicked the next button which brings you to a section where you are able to select the date and time of day when the email will be sent!  One problem, I received the following error message:

Let me first say I am glad that this system has something in place that prevents me from sending out something that may have an error, however without a description I don't know what to fix. This could easily be fixed by simply putting an explanation of what this specific error means!
