Once you're happy with the design of your campaign and before emailing it out to your contacts, it's important to test it thoroughly.
This is where Step 3: Spam & Design Test comes into play.
Testing allows you and your colleagues to proof your email, to confirm that it contains all of the expected content, and they can give you feedback about what it looks like in their different email clients and devices.
The platform provides testing tools for you. After creating the content of your HTML and plain text versions of your campaign, you can: Send Test Email, request Spam Test and Design Test and all from one place. More on using spam and design testing here.
Send a preview to you and your team by selecting an email address from the drop-down list.
You can also preview your email in 70+ different email clients and mobile devices and get results in seconds by using the Design Test.
The subject line will be prefixed with [Preview] followed by the subject line and the tracking will not be enabled as this would be only a preview test.
Emails render differently in every email client.
Our Design Test allows you to preview your email campaign in over 70+ different email clients and mobile devices in seconds.
In order to see the results, you just need to click on the green Design Test button.
This will automatically take you to the design test results section. In case the thumbnails are not available - ‘awaiting image’ - just click on the Refresh button at the top right.
Note: Please note the results preview might take a few seconds!
Keep your email out of the spam folder, no matter what email provider your recipients use.
In order to spam test your campaign you only have to perform one single step - click on the yellow Spam Test button and it'll automatically take you to the spam test results section.
Your campaign is passed through a spam filter and is scored accordingly.
The spam test will test your email against 23 of the most popular spam filters. In your final report, you will receive a pass/fail feedback in Google Apps, SpamAssasin, Barracuda, DKIM, Gmail, Outlook, SPF and many more.
Note: Please note the testing requires some time and ‘pending’ status will appear next to each test. Please click ‘refresh’ to preview the spam results which are ready!
