Email Webpage Version

Email Features Updated on July 27, 2022

The web-page version of your email is meant for contacts who have trouble viewing your email campaign in their inbox.

Possible reasons could be: 

  • The subscriber has disabled images or graphics in their inbox.
  • Their email provider does not allow graphics and images to appear in emails.

Additionally, some recipients could have firewalls that prevent your email’s images from displaying correctly. By including a link to the webpage version, you avoid someone missing out on your promotions. Also, you can use your webpage version link in different social media outlets.
