If you don't want to start from scratch, you can upload a template you have bought or a designer has created, and edit it in the Visual Editor. This would make it easier for you since you will be seeing the changes right away.
This is done with the Import template button on the top menu:
It opens a dialog box where you can paste the HTML code of the template and click Import. The editor will load your template and make all editing options available.
*Note: If there are images in the template, you have two options:
- upload all images to the editor one by one
- host them somewhere and put the correct link in the email.
