If you send enough email campaigns, you would likely have wondered what factors influence if your email makes it into the inbox and how could you avoid spam filter issues.

New features and updates

Besides the incremental (and thus unique) ID SMTPeter gives to your templates, API endpoint now also accepts the template name as an identifier. Peter will initially search for a matching template ID. If he fails to find one, he will look for a matching template name and send out the mail based on that template.

You probably already know that SMTPeter is not only an email gateway, but also a centralized template store. The editor for the templates has recently been enhanced. It now is possible to write the HTML code of the templates yourself, and you are no longer forced to use a drag-and-drop editor (although if you like the drag-and-drop editor, you can of course still use it).
