Border for Entire Email

I wish there was an option to put a border around an entire email to frame it. I want the inner background and outer background colors to be the same (in this case both white) but would like some separation between the two and being able to add a frame or border around the entire email would help break it up. I do not want to use a background pattern or background color other than white. This seems like a very basic design element to provide.

Hey @RachelH8689, thanks for providing this feedback! I've opened this idea up for voting so we can get further feedback from other users and allow them to "Kudo" this idea if they agree.

The legacy format for editing content was much better. The new format does not allow for adding borders to content blocks. There are very limited design elements. 

Are there plans to improve this?

Hi @BethL. Our editor has a block layout that includes a border, both for a single column and a double column. Does this help?

Could you also let us know what elements you think are missing or what you would like to see?

The border blocks you reference are not a good substitute and very difficult to manipulate. In legacy editor, it is possible to include a border surrounding all blocks.

Hi @BethL thank you for following up with us on this request! By adding a border surrounding all blocks, do you mean around the whole complete email or every individual block you may add in?

You have to choose a template with the border option
