Goal​

To upload an email or part of an email that has been prepared with an external tool.

Background Information​

You can create a message or a part of a message in an external tool, then upload this content into Mapp Engage for sendout.

In the ​Upload Message Parts​ window you can upload or import different types of content.

  • A section of email HTML for an email.

  • A section of plain text for an email.

  • A multi-part MIME email file (.eml)

  • A section of SMS content.

  • A section of a push notification content.

  • An external CMS message.

Hint:

When you upload a message part or CMS message, the imported content overwrites everything in the message creation wizard. If you do not want to overwrite content, create another message.
