Composing emails that go beyond the regular text-and-attachment format — such as, say, drafting a fancy newsletter — is complicated stuff. For that purpose, writing in HTML has been the easiest way to make mails more engaging. Tools do exist to assist you in the process, helping you build HTML mails by dragging and dropping blocks of code, but that’s something, while indeed simple, can also get quite restrictive. Maildeveloper, while still in public beta, provides an alternative.
It helps you create HTML emails easily via both mobile and desktop versions. You start off with a template and add elements to the message. The entire mail is divided in the form of grids that you can stack on top of each other or side by side. So, if you want to create multiple rows and columns of content that recipients can go through, it’s as easy as creating tables. But what really sets Maildeveloper apart is the level of control. You manage the look and feel of common elements simultaneously, so if you make changes, the entire message stays synced and in harmony. The site also lets you tweak the HTML and CSS code and includes it when the mail is exported, while also detecting any errors you may make while duplicating code. The site also lets you send test mails before you export the code.
