Saving a message on

If you are using BEE Pro, please also see: Saving & exporting your message. If you are using the embeddable version of the BEE editor, BEE Plugin, please see: where are messages saved?

Saved in your browser

When you use, the editor saves a copy to your browser storage system. This goes beyond the browser session. You can close your browser session (all browser tabs) and then restart the browser. When you go back to, the system will retrieve the message from your browser storage. Also, it will ask you if you wish to continue working on it.


There is nothing you need to do to save the message to your browser. An auto-save feature takes care of the task every 30 seconds.

Save by downloading a ZIP file

When you save a message with BEE Free, the system allows you to download a ZIP file. It contains both the HTML and the images that make up the message. You can then import the file into any application that allows you to do so, and then edit and send the message there.

Save by sending the message to your ESP

Some email marketing systems allow you to save a message into your account by sending it to a special email address. For example, in MailUp there is the "List+" feature. You send an email to a special address, and MailUp will save it to that List in your account. The folks at Mailchimp call it Email Beamer, and it works the same way.

Save by sending the message to Zapier

Zapier is a system that connects many applications. You can use it to push a message created on to another application. See: Exporting to many apps via Zapier.

Save by sending the message to yourself

Use the Send Test icon feature to send a message to yourself. The message will arrive in your inbox. You can use it or save it, taking advantage of the features available to you in your email program (e.g. Gmail, Outlook, etc.).
For example, let's say you want to send a message created with the BEE editor from your Gmail or Outlook account. Here are the simple steps to take:
  • Send the message to your Gmail account using the Send Test feature
  • In Gmail, select the message and click on Forward
  • Remove the extra lines at the top and the signature, if any
  • Select Edit subject to change the message subject
  • Enter the recipients and send the message

Please note that this forwarding method may impact the rendering or responsiveness of your message.

Save by using a BEE Pro account

The Export menu in BEE Free also provides export options only available to BEE Pro users. To set them apart fom the available ZIP export option, the icons for these methods are all in purple. Clicking on any of these purple export methods will direct you to a new page which prompts you to try a free trial of BEE Pro. Upon signing up for the free trial, your message will be automatically imported to your new BEE Pro account. 
BEE Pro includes all the same functionality as BEE Free with some additional features:
  • Save and edit an unlimited number of messages.
  • Create new messages from templates.
  • Clone existing messages.
  • Organize your messages through the use of Projects.
  • Multiple users and more!
If you're not using BEE Pro already, check it out!

    Hey there. I stumbled on your product and love it! I created a template in the free version but want to save it to continue working on it, so I signed up for a Pro account. The thing is that my template did not show up in my pro account. How do I get it?

    Hi Stephanie, we are very aware of the problem that this causes, and we are actively looking to improve the user experience for our customers soon. Right now there is no easy fix, unfortunately: you will need to recreate the message in your new BEE Pro account.

    Well, that's unpleasant. But I'll overlook it as I am extremely happy that you exist at all! Fantastic product. I would love to provide feedback and give suggestions for enhancements, is it best to post them here?

    Also, thanks so much for the swift reply Massimo!

    Hi Massimo, I'm loving Beefree! I've just used it to create a nice little emailer for our school. However, I seem to have lost my template all together! I'm freaking out! I have exported the zip-file but I need to edit it one last time before I can send it. Please help me ! This would be much appreciated!!
    Thank-you :)

    Hi Nina, glad that you're liking the BEE editor!

    You should be able to edit and access your template again by clicking on the "Continue editing your last message?" link on the top, blue header from the homepage

    Everything has gone smoothly so far, but when I download the html and copy the code over to constant contact all my images are there except for the social media icons. How do i link the icons so that it isn't just the text link to social sites?
