Libero Now Available in Litmus Email Previews

[ 0 By

We’re excited to announce the most recent addition to Litmus Email Previews: Libero.

Libero was the first local provider to introduce a free webmail service to the Italian market—and Libero Mail still is a popular service today. As of May 2017, Libero was home to about 8 million active email accounts.

If you’re catering to an Italian email audience, it’s important to make sure that your email looks great in Libero inboxes. With Litmus Email Previews, you can now see how your email renders in Libero, so you can spot and fix errors before you hit send.

Optimize your email for International inboxes

Test your email in popular international webmail clients, including Libero, with Litmus Email Previews—and catch rendering errors before you send.

We took a close look at the Libero inbox and how it renders email. Here’s what we found.

Inbox View

Subject line length

79 characters for unread mail, 89 for read mail

Emoji support in subject line

yes

Preview text support

no

Preview text length

N/A

Auto sorting (Folder or Tabs)

Primary, Promotions, and Social*

* tabs can be manually enabled and disabled by the user

Focus on your subject lines

With no preview text support, focusing on a powerful subject line is key for email success in Libero. Ensure that your subject line—in combination with a clear from name—encourages your subscriber to open your message and sets the right expectations about what the subscriber will find when they open the email.

Message View

Preview pane support

yes

Width of window for email

900px

Length of email (Is it clipped?)

Yes. 80kb limit.

 

Closely monitor your emails’ file sizes to avoid clipping

The fact that email clients clip emails that are beyond a specific file size is nothing new. Gmail is the most popular email provider that clips all emails with a file size larger than 102kb. Libero shows similar behavior, but is even more restrictive than Gmail. All emails that are over 80kb are getting cut off in the inbox:

Libero notifies the subscriber that the email got clipped and offers a link to the full version of the message. However, the note on the bottom is easy to miss, which makes it likely that many subscribers won’t see the full message—and might miss any important CTAs on the bottom part of your email—when it gets clipped.

Don’t get clipped

Check to see if your emails are being clipped in Libero and dozens of other popular email clients and devices using Litmus Checklist.

Using image compression tools and keeping your code as clean and concise as possible can help cut down your email’s file size. You can learn more about this in our Ultimate Guide to Email File Size and Load Times.
