    Here are the steps:

    4. click on blue 'New Newsletter' button

    Now, to send yourself a test, after the steps above:

    - Make sure the correct email address appears in the box

    Look in your email program for the 'MERGED VERSION' (meaning both text and images will show) - if you don't see it, check your spam folder.

    Then you'll need to go back to your control panel newsletter system, click on Drafts, then click 'Preview and Send' for it to go out to your subscriber list.



    If you use Internet Explorer as your browser and wish to use Artful Mail for a newsletter, when you login to the newsletter software and click on New Newsletter, you will see this message:

    ArtfulMail BETA does not support Internet Explorer at this time

    Please try again with Firefox, Chrome or Safari.

    If you wish to proceed with Internet Explorer, click the link below the warning, that says:
    Just be aware things may not work as intended.


    If you choose to proceed, you may find that when you type in text, your text will NOT save. That is only one problem you may experience.

    Our apologies but we cannot correct usability issues with Internet Explorer.

    We highly recommend using any browser other than Internet Explorer when using our interactive software. Mozilla Firefox and Chrome are favorites here at FASO and very easy to use.
