Hi there,

I have this error in OS X and I don’t know why is not compatible with MailChimp. I have completed all the required fields for the MailChimp and still this error appears. Does anyone have any idea about this error? How can this error be solved? Thanks!

Your form’s fields may be incompatible with MailChimp!

Please match a field to the required MailChimp “EMAIL” field.

This error typically happens when a user tries to import his address book directly into MailChimp. Since each mail program slightly differently records contacts, trying to force mail addresses formatted in one way into a program that cannot recognize them can have disastrous consequences. To fix this problem, follow these steps:

1. Visit this link and download Chimport, a tool that manages addresses and converts them into format MailChimp can safely use.

2. Use your MailChimp API Key to log in.

3. You address book will be displayed. Right click on desired contacts and select "Export to MailChimp".

Yes, that’s right. This error typically happens when you create a mailing list or import your address book to MailChimp. This error happens because the form in your address book is slightly different or is not compatible with the MailChimp form. The EMAIL field in MailChimp is left blank and that causes the following error to appear. The first image is the error received in Mac OS X while the second image is the error from Microsoft Windows.

Since the EMAIL field in MailChimp is blank because of incompatible forms, creating or compiling a mailing list without email addresses doesn’t make sense that’s why an error is reported. MailChimp doesn’t allow saving a form without an email address. To fix this issue, go to the Web Form Builder then create an Email Address element. Once this is done, match it or put the same email address in the EMAIL field of MailChimp. It should fix the problem.
