Hello and welcome back .

In  the last Mailchimp post we saw how we can import lists from a Tab Delimited text file . We saw how to rename the column fields after importing your list. We also saw how to delete unwanted columns after importing your subscriber  list into Mailchimp . if you didn’t read it or watch that video, go back and see how you can import subscriber list .

In this post you  are  going to see how you can delete a list. You will also see how to delete one or multiple email subscribers from your list.

Deleting Subscribers

  • First of all go to your list by clicking on it under your lists.
  • Select the check boxes for the emails you want to delete. The check boxes are in the first column.
  • You can delete one or multiple email subscribers . Depends on your selection.
  • After making your selection, click on the Delete button . The delete button is located at the top of the list .
  • Once you select Delete, a confirmation will come up. Where you can confirm subscriber deletion or Cancel.

Delete a full Mailchimp List

For whatever reason, if you want to delete a full Mailchimp list. Here is the process.

  • Click on Lists to go back to where all your lists are. Lists is located at the very top on the menu .
  • On the Lists window, where all your lists are listed, choose the list you want to delete.
  • Then click on the Delete Button .
  • You will need to confirm that you want to delete the list. On the confirmation window that comes up, Type DELETE to confirm your action.
  • Then click on Delete and the list will be deleted.
