A request to our customers

 

If you are using or plan to use Web messages using the old-style template, please take the following actions.

Continuing to distribute Web messages that have been published

 

There are two ways to continue to distribute the message.

 

  1. Please recreate the message using the template marked "NEW", including the new template that will be released on Tuesday, February 9, 2021.
  2. Please duplicate the web message created with the old template, switch the type to "Custom" and publish it.

Please note that "Custom" messages require knowledge of HTML/CSS to edit. Please be careful.
