Additional Information

  • The default list is the list that will be used for all emails being sent into Litmus and for the creation of new emails. 
  • Changes to email client selections after a new email is created or sent in are retained for that email only.
  • Lists are specific to each user and are not shared across your team.
  • When you switch between lists in Builder or Previews & QA, new previews will only be run for any clients not used in the previous list. For any clients used on both lists, new previews will not be generated or count towards your usage.
  • The feature is restricted to Full users, Account Holders, and Admins to create & edit profiles within Settings. 
  • For Enterprise Accounts: any Global Email Client settings configured by an admin will apply as before.
  • Your lists are not available in the Litmus extension, or within ESP partner integrations.
