Re: When you send a sample email out, please confirm that the person you put in the test name does not get the actual email, and that only the people in the boxes below it get the actual email.
That's correct. It only goes to the email addresses you input in the box. The lead name you pick is just giving you the option to see what that email would look like for that particular lead. This is good to test especially with responsive emails, tokens, etc.
