Testing is crucial to ensure your email campaign arrives in your recipients' inbox as intended. It is important to test not just for design issues but also the possibility of your email being filtered out by firewalls and SPAM filters.
Eliminating issues with design and security
Unlike web browsers, every email application handles HTML differently, creating the likelihood that your email will not appear identical across all platforms and client software. The results can range from dissapointing to having a major impact on the presentation and functionality of your design.
Furthermore, most email clients are well protected behind firewalls and security software from the contant bombardment of SPAM and other malicious malware. Emails containg specific word combinations, large images or dubious scripts frequently trip these systems, preventing an otherwise decent email from reaching a willing reader.
Fortuantely, the AxEmail campaign manager provides a convenient and powerful means of testing your email across mutiple systems. Any issues identified can then be fixed in editting, either by yourself or Axetis.

Your campaign is tested on more than twenty of the most popular desktop, web-based and mobile-based email applications. The resulting snapshots are not merely approximations. The email is actually passed through the filter, enabling you to see exactly how it will appear on each of those systems. Opposite is a list of the email apps tested:
In addition to viewing screenshot variations from each system, a list of security liabilities is presented. Many of these can be resolved by choosing different words and phrases in your editor.
You can run these tests yourself or have Axetis perform them for you.
