How to design an email

You can design your email using the email builder when sending an email message, or by creating an email template.

Video tutorial:


The email builder has a large area in the middle which is the email design canvas. 


To the right, there is a menu with 3 categories. These categories reveal the elements and settings that can be used to design the email.


Click on the Settings menu to edit the overall characteristics of the email, including:

  • Text colour
  • Background colour
  • Background image
  • Content area width
  • Font default
  • Link colour


You can create your email layout using a series of rows. Rows are like containers that hold different types of content. You can add as many rows as you like to an email. Simply drag and drop the rows into the editor to design the layout.


Once you've designed the layout with blocks, you are ready to drag and drop different content elements.
