How do I edit my email settings?

Modify general settings that apply to the entire message.

Machine Labs Email Settings

Within the email editor, on the third tab in the right hand side toolbar, you can alter the general options that apply to your whole message:

  • Content area width: this is the width of the area where content blocks are dropped. According to email marketing best practices, it should typically be set to 600px or less. Please note that this is the maximum width that will be used on larger devices. When the device’s screen is smaller, the message will adjust automatically to it.
  • Background color: it's the message background color. This setting is effective only for rows (and columns) where a color has not been specified. Otherwise, the background color specified for that content structure will be used.
  • Content area background color: it's the background color for the content area. This setting is effective only for rows and columns where a color has not been specified.
  • Default font: it's the default font that will be used when another font family has not been specified. This setting affects all text set to use the global font.
  • Link color: it's the link color. As above, this setting affects all text links set to use the default color.
