April 21st, 2014 Update:
We are excited to announce you can now preview your emails in Internet Explorer 10 & Internet Explorer 11.

Out with the old…

After 12 years, the time has finally come to say goodbye to Windows XP. Due to Microsoft XP’s “end of life,” their support for Windows XP will end on April 8th, 2014. We will be discontinuing previews for Internet Explorer 8 and Outlook Express effective April 21st, 2014.

We will also be deprecating email previews for the iPhone iOS5. According to our analytics, only .7% of opens occur on this device/OS combination, and that percentage is only going to get smaller. We are making way for the most popular browsers/devices so you can continue to pursue pixel perfection.

…And in with the new

We are ramping up our library of web browsers to offer the most up to date previews. We will add Internet Explorer 10 to our repertoire of email previews effective April 21st, 2014 so you can have the most accurate test results.

We do apologize if this causes any inconvenience and we’ll be here to support you through this transition. Don’t be shy; give us a shout in the comments section if you have questions about these changes.
