You can now send an email to a single contact with the 'Quick Email' feature added on product and for APIs. The contact who receives the email is included into the overall stats of the sent email/campaign. Personalisation, unsubscribes, etc are also taken into account. It is available for sent messages only. You can find the button in the quick links list on the email history page.
