- Insert a data field

When inserted, you may need to add width and/or height attributes as these work better in some older email clients and stop the image from breaking the layout of your campaign.

<!-- eehtmlonly --> to the top of the
<body> part of your email, and then save. Next time you reload the campaign, it will automatically load in the HTML editor.
Remove this code if you want to return to using EasyEditor again.
