How Do I Add a Border to My Email?

UPDATED: July 2018

When creating a email within our product, some of our templates come with borders around them. Other times they do not. When that happens, don’t fret. I can show you how you can add a border around your email. You will just want to use the coding that I give you and follow my steps. It’s all very simple! So, let’s get started.

 

  • Open up your Email that you are working on.
  • When you can see the Email in Edit mode, click on Style Sheet

  • Now, scroll down until you see the body tag and change it to look like the following:

 

.BODY{
border-bottom:10px solid #445555;
border-left:10px solid #445555;
border-right:10px solid #445555;
border-top:10px solid #445555;
}

 

  • Click the Gold Save button.
  • Then hit Preview to see your new border.
  • You can edit the width by adjusting the 10px and if you’d like to use a different color, you can enter that instead of the #445555.

 

And that’s it! That is as easy as it is to add a border to your email! So, what are you waiting for? Go log into your account and add a border now!
