Page backgrounds on your emails enable you to set a background color or background image surrounding your email content.

Before you start

Page background images won't show on some of the most popular email clients. It's recommended to set a similar background color to your image to keep the look and feel of your email the same on these clients.

Background images will show on:

Gmail, iOS Mail, Apple Mail, Yahoo!

Background images won't show on:

Outlook 2003, Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016, Outlook 2019, Outlook.com

Adding a Page Background Color

To set the page background color. Click the border of your campaign within the email composer.

Next turn Page background ON and select a BG Color

Adding a Page Background Image

If you'd like to add an image that will show in-place of your background color on compatible email clients. Click the down chevron next to the BG color field to expand and show a zone to upload your image.

Double click Add Image and you'll be prompted to upload an image.

Other Considerations

Background Images on Individual Blocks

SmartrMail supports background images for header and footer backgrounds. We don't support background images for individual body blocks.


Image Size Requirements

Patterns like the example image above, work best for page background images. The image will display at its full size and repeat if the subscribers screen is larger than the image.

We recommend keeping images between 1500 and 2500 pixels wide. The recommended image height depends on how much content you’ve got in your email, but it’s important to keep in mind that larger images can load slower.
