Question: I need to send a web page but it doesn't work. I have spent hours today turning around on all the ways (I tested my mailer, the smtp account, all the parameters... "everything") up to noticing that MBM doesn't want to send my web page. Can you help please?
Answer: Ok, please forgive my tone in this message, I really appreciate you use MaxBulk Mailer but let me explain what's happening.
The Web Page format works this way:
- MaxBulk Mailer connects to the URL provided.
- The page is downloaded as HTML code.
- MaxBulk Mailer sends the message with that code in the body, as is.
Since email software are not web browsers the sent message has to be checked thoroughly, send a message to yourself for example. I do it all the time.
I added the Web Format for people to upload the HTML code they have written (themselves) and send a URL instead of pasting the code in the message. I added the Web Format for people that know what they are doing (no offense here). There are reasons to do that actually.
I did not add the Web page format for you to send whatever page you have seen on the internet (no offense here). It would be really crazy to think it will always work, I believe it will almost never work, because of the reason I explained above.
So, just to make things clear, the problem you have has absolutely no relation with MaxBulk Mailer. I have said millions of times to write simple HTML, compatible HTML, this is the only way to be sure a mail reader or a web mail system will render it.
People that sell email templates on the internet spend lot of time testing them on all kind of software and systems to be sure that are fully compatible and render the same way everywhere.
Your page can't be sent as is by email, not at all. You have to edit it and make it simple. Remove incompatible stuff
