Join Tim Slavin for an in-depth discussion in this video Testing the email in BrowserLab, part of Creating an HTML Email Newsletter.
This is where we left off with our HTML e-mail;…it's fully coded and ready to test.…To begin our test, we need to put our HTML e-mail file on a remote web server…along with its images.…Our current file is number 4 and we'll copy our Image folder and we'll drag them over.…Then I double-check if this file does display over the Internet, it does, we're…ready to begin testing.…To begin our testing, let's start with browser lab, this is currently a free…service that Adobe offers where you can test how your HTML e-mail displays…against various web browsers.…
We've created a browser set of just Internet Explorer browsers, and we go to…the Test page, we'll go back to the URL where our HTML file is located, we'll…paste it into the URL.…We can see that at the top, the HTML e-mail displays fine, including…our background border.…We also can see that our spacing and alignment generally is okay.…The copyright line and find us on Facebook line might be pushed down a little…bit, but otherwise it displays perfectly.…
