Mixmax brings many features to your Gmail experience, and today we’re adding one more: the ability to add custom html to any Gmail message!
There are a number of use cases for why you want to use HTML in your email. For instance, you may want to insert content from an external source, code your own content, or even add a special signature. If that’s the case, Custom HTML is perfect for you.

There you have it. Now it’s your turn!
