Note: Some email users may only be able to view text-only emails and those that are using an older version of AOL, specifically AOL 5.0, will need to have images removed from the email. Before you finish creating your email content, make sure you complete the HTML and Text sections.

13. In the Convert HTML window, perform the following steps:
      a. Select the Convert HTML to Text checkbox.
      b. Click Submit. A text only version of the content appears in the Content Editor.

14. Edit the content so that it will display without graphics and hyperlinks.

Note: Because text only messages do not provide hyperlinks to Web site addresses, you may want to add a statement in the content such as, if this link is not clickable, copy and paste the link into your Web browser. If you click Save in the HTML editor window before populating the Text section, you will be prompted to generate text content from HTML. If you do not click OK the system will not automatically convert the HTML. The text version will be blank unless you opt to have the HTML converted. Once the Text section is populated, make sure that any changes made in the HTML mode are transferred to the other version since changes to one version will not affect the other.

15. Click Preview to view the text version of the content. A window displaying the text version of the content appears.

Note: If you plan to reuse this email content for future mailings, save it to the Mail Content Library by clicking Add to Library. The email file will be saved in Control > Administration > Tools > Mail Group Cleanup > Mail Content.

Tip: If you are not creating completely new mailing content, we recommend that you use content from the Mail Content Library or the email Template Library since these saved areas preserve the HTML code. Duplicating existing mailings can cause corruption in the code and can alter the look and feel of the message content.

19. Click Finish.
20. Click Save in the email Save Confirm window. The campaign mailing page appears displaying a link with the name of the content.
