We want to change the width of the email


There is too much space on the sides of the email and want to widen it a bit. I do not see an option or template that allows this to happen. Please advise me on a third party template or CSS that can provide the solution we want.


Michael, please forward this to me when replied too.

Hello @MichaelE912 ,


The emails made in our system are generally 600-650px by default as external testing has shown that achieves the most reliable deliverability and appearance across email clients. You can get some additional freedom with this by using our custom code editor, but there may be deliverability and other elements to keep in mind, when you're constructing an email 100% from HTML.
