You can edit the source of your HTML message directly in the message window.

To customize your e-mail, you can do the following:

1.  Insert the cursor in the text at the point where you want the field data to be inserted.

2.  Click the field name that you want from the list on the top right corner (Name, LastName, E-mail, CustomField...)

3.  The customized information will be pasted automatically into the message.

When you preview the message MultiEmail replaces the field names with the data from your records. Each customer

will receive an e-mail with their personal information in the message.

For Example: [[Name]] [[Last Name]] will look like: John Smith after the e-mail has been sent. Be sure that all the

records in the mailing list contain data in the field that you choose. If a record does not contain data in the field, the

email displays blank space instead of information.

4. Click on Preview tab to preview your message.
