Content & Email

Litmus preview integration

Your subscribers open your emails via a wide range of apps, with the new Litmus preview integration, you can preview your emails in across over 90 apps and email providers. The "Preview & Test" feature in Content Builder didn't have the functionality which allowed you to view emails from different email providers. You can easily connect with your litmus account and click on the icon to generate the preview.


Sitecore content integration

If you're using the Sitecore CMS, gone are the days of manually uploading creatives to the platform - you can now use the connector to sync all your assets (images, documents...).The assets from Sitecore are uploaded in Sitecore and the connector will bring the images into Content Builder in a read only mode.

Domain Verification & From Address Management

In the Admin tab you can now access From Address Management. From Address Management is used with Domain Verification in Email Studio to search, filter, add, and start the verification email process for from addresses used for sending.
