Step by Step Instructions

When you create a new message, click the "Templates" button in the right hand side of the message editor. This will be located under your "Message Properties" section.

Next, double click on the "Plain" template to choose it.

Note: If you do not have any pre-written content to keep you will want to make sure the "Keep My Content" box is unchecked.

By default your template will be center aligned for how it is received by subscribers in their inbox. If you would like your plain template to be left aligned you can select that option from underneath the template.

Now, you can double click on the default text to start typing.

You can now create a message with just plain text and hyperlinks, without using a template or any other HTML features.
