I have mixed feelings about this app.

On the one side, it's really easy and quick to use. Much faster to work with that similar online tools.

On the other side, it is rather limited when it comes to styling the email. It relies heavily on using images instead of HTML for styling.
There is no way to put borders, paddings and margins on elements, there is support for simple html elements such as tables or thematic breaks.

It doesn't really do justice to its name as a "designer" software, it's more of a template oriented software.
Even the free MailChimp editor has more advanced design features than this.

It is however a very promising piece of software and no doubt it will fit the needs for many people. But for me it feels rather limiting at this point.

That should be "there is _no_ support for simple html elements.."

I currently own Mail Designer, and while it may be good, for a small business it's quite expensive. I looked at the Pro version, which costs even more, but because the developer doesn't seem to offer any upgrade path I'm going to give it a miss.

Note re: my rating - I didn't want to be unfair by giving the Pro version poor rating, and because I haven't tried it am basing my rating on Mail Designer.
