In the Static lists tab you can create a fixed selection. This means that you will make a selection in advance, for example from your CRM. A static list contains a set number of contacts and, unlike dynamic lists, it does not work based on filters. A static list can be useful for a one-time mailing. For example, a mailing to all non-openers of your newsletter.
