Testing the plain text version of your email

When you create a campaign, you can select to send it in plain text or multipart text+html formats. Testing an email that is just text is pretty straightforward, and testing the html portion is also easy, but how do you see the plain text part of a multipart email? Here’s how to check what people will see if their email client is setup to show text only.

Test with Thunderbird

Thunderbird is a cross platform, free email client, and it lets you easily view the plain text version of a multipart email.

View > Message Body As > Plain Text

Test with Apple Mail

Apple Mail has the same functionality built in:

View > Message > Plain Text Alternative

 

In both clients, you can swap back and forth between html and text views.
