New HTML Editor Option: TinyMCE is here!

We've just added a third choice of HTML editor to JangoMail, and it's a crowd favorite: TinyMCE. TinyMCE is a lightweight, powerful JavaScript-based HTML editor that loads fast. We'll continue to option our other two editors, the simple ActivEdit editor and the powerful Java-based EditLive editor as well. Most of the features we offered in the EditLive editor have been replicated in the TinyMCE editor, including:
  1. One-click ability to insert a CAN-SPAM footer, View as Web Page link, Twitter and Facebook sharing icons
  2. One-click ability to insert custom, pre-defined HTML snippets at the cursor location.
  3. Ability to load templates directly from the editor

Additionally, with the TinyMCE editor, you can switch between the Plain Text Editor and the HTML editor instantly, without having to re-load the page.

While the Java-based EditLive is still quite powerful, some users found it too slow to load and too clunky for rapid keystrokes. The TinyMCE editor is powerful, feature-rich, and lightning fast.

To set your account to use TinyMCE, begin composing a new message. Click the Settings Icon and choose the TinyMCE editor out of the three available options.
