Property content

The content property is a deeply nested string property that is used inside text blocks and HTML blocks. It holds the actual text or HTML content. If used inside a HTML block, the content may contain HTML code. If you do supply HTML, we advise to only use simple and straightforward HTML elements like <p>, <b>, <i>, <a>, etc. More complex tags might cause compatibility issues across different email clients. You must also make sure that the HTML code that you supply is valid, and does not accidentally contain unclosed HTML tags or characters.

When the content property is used in a text block,, the use of HTML is not possible. In fact, all HTML code is then automatically escaped, so you do not even have to worry about accidentally inserting HTML characters like < and &, because such characters are automatically escaped by the Responsive Email API.


The following JSON input shows an example how to a text block and a HTML block with the content propery.

    "from" : "",
    "subject" : "Email with only one text block",
    "content" : {
        "blocks" : [ 
                "type" : "html",
                "content" : "<p>Example <b>HTML</b> code</p>"
                "type" : "text",
                "content" : "Example textual content"
