The new version of MessageFocus provides seamlessly integrated content previews. From the campaign overview, you can see how your email looks in 22 email clients in just a couple of minutes by clicking ‘Request Content Preview’ in the sidebar.


You have the option of a free test, which provides previews of Outlook 2003 and Gmail, which is great if you need a quick check of your campaign before launch. Alternatively, you can perform a complete test, which provides comprehensive previews of the most common email clients, including the most recent versions of Outlook, Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo!, Apple Mail and Lotus Notes. So, you can be confident that your target audience is viewing your email as intended.
