We highly recommend you put your html newsletter through this premailer convertor (https://premailer.dialect.ca/).

How to:

  1. Host your html newsletter so that you can access it with a URL.
  2. Copy and paste the newsletter URL into the URL box of the premailer.
  3. Check the top 3 boxes under Options (leave the 4th option unchecked!) and Submit.
  4. Preview the converted version by clicking “CLICK TO VIEW THE HTML RESULTS”.
  5. If converted version appears undistorted in your preview, copy and paste the converted html source into a new html file.
    In the event the preview looks distorted, it would mean your original html newsletter do not conform to the requirements of html newsletter. You have to edit your html newsletter and repeat this whole process again.
  6. Submit this converted html file.

In the event you did not go through this premailer step, we will still put your submitted html through this premailer procedure, but will not be responsible for any distortion.
