Automatic Email Account Setup

Tip: Enterprise customers can submit internal account details to be added for employees to help optimise workflow without any technical requirements.
Improved: Color Handling
Mail Designer 365 version 1.6 also fixes inconsistencies which some customers were experiencing when picking and assigning colors. These were being caused by subtle differences in the color picker’s color profile and Mail Designer. You can now use hex values consistently in the new color swatch popover field, to ensure consistent color matching.
What you need to know:
- All colors are now stored in the sRGB color profile
- You can specify hex color values directly in the color swatch popover
- Mail Designer 365 now also tries to set your macOS Color Picker to use sRGB whenever possible to ensure consistency.
The team has also carried out the following improvements to make Mail Designer 365 even better for you:
- You can now use the “All Caps” options on text within image areas.
- LinkedIn links which can’t be checked automatically by the PreFlight checker now show a different message.
- An issue which occurred for some users when cropping retina images has been fixed.
- Editing the inner message background now works as expected.
- Preflight size estimates are now more accurate.
- An issue which could cause some images to appear slightly blurred after scaling has been fixed.
