How To Articles

Have you ever mistakenly deleted a contact from your Mailchimp audience and hoped to recover them? Believe me, I’ve been in that situation as well. In this article, I will walk you through the step-by-step process of resubscribing a permanently deleted contact in Mailchimp.

Step 1: Accessing the Audience Dashboard

To get started, log in to your Mailchimp account and navigate to the Audience dashboard. This is where you’ll find all your contact lists and subscribers.

Step 2: Finding the Deleted Contact

Once you’re on the Audience dashboard, locate the “Audience” dropdown menu and select “All contacts.” This will display a list of all your contacts, including the deleted ones.

Step 3: Filtering the Deleted Contacts

To find the deleted contact you want to resubscribe, you can use the search bar at the top of the page. Enter the email address or any other relevant information to filter the list and narrow down the results.

Step 4: Viewing the Contact Details

Next, find the deleted contact you want to resubscribe and click on their email address to view their contact details.

Step 5: Resubscribing the Contact

On the contact details page, you’ll see a “Resubscribe” button. Click on it to initiate the process of resubscribing the contact.

Step 6: Confirming the Resubscription

Once you click the “Resubscribe” button, Mailchimp will prompt you to confirm the action. Confirming the resubscription will undo the deletion and add the contact back to your audience.

Step 7: Updating and Saving the Contact Information

After confirming the resubscription, you’ll be directed to the contact details page once again. Take the opportunity to review and update the contact’s information if necessary. Make any changes and click on the “Save” button to ensure the updated information is stored correctly.


Recovering a permanently deleted contact in Mailchimp is possible with just a few simple steps. By following the process outlined above, you can bring back a contact that you accidentally removed from your audience. Remember to double-check the contact’s details and ensure their resubscription is reflected in your audience. With these steps, you can regain valuable connections and continue engaging with your audience seamlessly.
