Edit Default Settings within the Email Builder

This article will explain the general key features of the "Settings" tab within the email builder.  This includes the content area width, how to change the background color, and how to change the link colors on your entire message.

Content Area Width

This is the width of the area where content blocks are dropped. According to email marketing best practices, it should be set to 800 px or more. Please note that 900 px 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:

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.
