Add a new email address to an account

Make a POST call to the /account/emails endpoint to add a new email address to the Constant Contact account associated with your access token. This method also automatically sends a confirmation email to the new email address.

When you Create an Email Campaign, you must use a confirmed email address in the from_email and reply_to_email properties. Use POST /account/emails to add a new email address to an account and send a confirmation email. Use GET /account/emails to view all account email addresses and their current status.

If the email address you are attempting to add already exists in the account, this method returns a 409 conflict error.

This method adds new emails addresses to the account for the account owner role. You cannot use this method to add email addresses for the account manager or campaign creator user role.
