Why does my email display differently on different email clients and how can that be prevented?
Different email clients can render things differently, including your Constant Contact email. We do offer an Inbox Preview tool that allows you to see how your readers will actually experience your email in these various email clients. This tool is offered in our Third-Generation Editor.
What is the difference between a button block and a "donation" block?
The donation action block allows you to collect and track donations. It also gives you detailed reporting of these donations. When you insert a button into your email, it can be linked to an email address, a website URL, or even a document from your library.
Is the donation block accessible for those in Canada?
It is! You would need our Email Plus package to access it, though.

Is there a way to link to an e-mail address and/or a PDF in an email?
We suggest that yoursubject lineshould have no more than 4-7 words or 40 characters. Most email providers will truncate -or cut off- subject lines with more than 60 characters.
Does every email need a call to action? There is always an opportunity to have your readers take an action, even if it is just to "learn more" with a link to your website. An informative email would still wanta call-to-action. You want to consider, "What is the most important information I want to make sure they read?" For a "Thank You" email, you would not necessarily need a call-to-action but it wouldn't hurt to include a clear link to your website or other location that you might want to drive awareness or traffic.
