Limitations of plain text emails

When creating and sending plain text emails, it’s important to note that it’s not possible to track opens. To learn more about how we track opens please see this help document.

While it is possible to track links in plain text emails, it’s not possible to embed your URL into text. In addition, not all email clients or devices may hyperlink your URL when the email is received by your contact.

If you want the look and feel of a plain text email and still track opens and embed your links into text, you will need to create an email using the Build From Scratch > Newsletter option and delete the image block from your email.
