New Tool Allows Real-Time Email Testing Against Multiple Platforms, Clients

Published: August 13, 2012

“It’s incredibly important to test marketing emails across different environments before hitting the ‘send’ button,” said Paul Farnell, CEO of Litmus, in a company release. “The problem is, we can’t have all the different versions of Outlook, Lotus Notes, Thunderbird, etc. installed on our computers.”

“What’s surprising to me,” Farnell added, “is that this kind of QA has been common practice for Web designers for about a decade.”

In addition to showing how a marketing email will render on multiple clients, the Litmus Interactive Testing tool allows users to edit messages in real time in order to make changes and view the results.

The full Litmus product suite also includes spam-filter testing and email analytics tools. According to the company, its products are compatible with any third-party email provider; API access is also available for enterprise developers.
