    I thought images were going to be saved in my Pro account so that they can be referenced there. Is that not the case?

    Hi Steven, it's an email deliverability matter, as we have no control on what will be sent, to whom, and how. We provided a more detailed answer to your question here: https://support.beefree.io/hc/communities/public/questions/207221015-Image-Files

    In the HTML, I would expect the and <meta name="description"> tags to be filled with the title and description. However, <title> desperately remain defaulted to "BF-template" and description is simply ignored.
    Isn't the HTML I download supposed to contains this?
    For now I edit the HTML but I of course would prefer to do nothing after the HTML download.

    (once sent, our emails have mirror pages that can be shared on social media, hence the necessity to have clean html containing the right tags and content)

    Hi Aurelie, thanks for the note. Let us dig into this a bit with the rest of the team and we'll get back to you.

    Hi Aurelie, I checked with the rest of the team. The main reason why that is the case is that the editor - as it is today - does not ask you to provide a name / description for the message. So it does not have anything meaningful to add to the tag.


    This could change in the future. For now, what most applications that have integrated BEE do is the following:


    * Upon saving the message, ask for Name (or Subject line) etc.
    * Save those values in your DB, together with the HTML, JSON, etc.
    * Use those values to automatically change the HTML of the message


    We hope this helps!


    Oops! ... I just realized that this thread is under BEE Pro, and not BEE Plugin. In BEE Pro, we do have the name/subject line, and therefore can fix this ourselves. We will do so in a future release for sure. I don't have an ETA for it yet, but we will let you know!

    Hello. I created an email using your product and the test email shows up very bad when viewing test email via iPhone 6. Can someone help?

    Hi Robert, are you using BeeFree or BEE Pro? It seems strange that your test email isn't rendering on iPhone. Please keep in mind that we can only provide very limited customer support for BeeFree.

    Hi developers, a big hand for your easy to manage user surface. One problem though:
    Personally, I use Outlook as an email provider and a special address program (cobra) for address management. So, in your trial version, I downloaded the created email as a zip document. Inside the document, there is an html-document and a folder with the picture material I used. Afterwards, I added the html document as a text to the email – but the images were lost when the email was received. Of course, I did obviously not send the pictures. Please advise me how to avoid that mistake the next time and explain the necessary steps for sending an email with picture material.

    Hi Moritz, the ZIP folder is ready to be imported in a send platform that host the message images. To use other send methods check this article about using externally hosted images: https://support.beefree.io/hc/en-us/articles/360004496232-How-to-use-external-images-in-your-message

    thanks

    Hi Hien, the plugin is just an embeddable editor. It's entirely up to you which features you decide to build around the editor. This article is about BEE Pro, which is an application that uses BEE Plugin. For a clarification on all BEE products, please see: https://beefree.io/find-your-product/

    I foolishly emailed my test flyer to an inaccurate email address. Is it gone forever or saved somewhere?

    Hi Michelle, thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, from our side, there's nothing we can do when the message is sent.
