An e-mail address can be provided for sending an e-mail notification (confirmation e-mail containing process information) as soon as all e-mails are sent.
This section contains two options:
– minify CSS
– minify HTML
The default setting for these options is ‘Off’. By checking one, or both, of the two options the content for the respective component in the e-mail are minified. By minifying one or both components the size (in Kb) of an e-mail is reduced.
By reducing the size of an e-mail the e-mail can be loaded more quickly and/or be displayed better in certain e-mail clients.
By selecting this option the cascading style sheet that is used in the e-mail is minified. This option will reduce the size of the CSS in the content. Spaces, enters and tabs, among other things, are removed.
By selecting this option the HTML of the e-mail is minified. Minifying the HTML will, among other things, remove unnecessary spaces within tags, comments and redundant characters from the HTML. Furthermore multiple subsequent spaces are converted to a single space.
Minify CSS and/or HTML is applied in the following locations:
– preview screen
– when sending a test e-mail
– when executing an e-mail block
The minified CSS and/or HTML is not visible in the content section of an e-mail block. Furthermore CSS and/or HTML is not minified in the online viewer and on landing pages.
N.B. minifying CSS and/or HTML may have an impact on the lay-out of an e-mail.
With this option it can be specified whether image slurping should be turned on or off.
While attaching the e-mail content a background process is started which downloads all the online images and HTML content to the server that sends out the e-mail (a Ternair e-mail server). The original HTML hyperlink to an image is replaced by an hyperlink referring to the location of the image on a Ternair server. The re-allocating process for images is completely automatic.
An HTML hyperlink to an online image will not be changed when it is not possible to download the image to a Ternair server.
The image ‘slurper’ prevents e-mails from being marked as spam; since by using the construction described above all images in the e-mail originate from the domain sending the e-mail.
The image ‘slurper’ works as follows:
An imaged will be slurped when, within the <img> tag, an image is included in the src (not case sensitive) and has a valid image extension. Valid image extensions are jpg, jpeg, jpe, gif, bmp, png.
Exceptions can be added for images that should not be included by the ‘image-slurper’. By using an * (asterisk) partial exceptions can be defined. For example www.domain.com/images/*
All images containing the link www.domain.com/images/ will be excluded from the images slurper.
Use this option to enable/disable editing the HTML content of an e-mail.
