Create a new template
To send an email you first need to create a template. Select 'Mailings' on the left hand menu.
It's a good idea to familiarise yourself with the layout options before creating your email. The email content is built as a series of rows. The rows can be just text, just photos or a combination of text and photos. Click here to see layout options and required image sizes.
Your template frames the email message and can have a coloured border and a white or coloured background. The template has a header which can simply be text or it can be an image. The template also has a footer which contains contact details, permissions, social media links etc.
