Creating a Great Looking Email in Sugar Sell

Sugar Sell’s Email template editor works OK if you need to send a basic email out. It comes with a WYSIWYG  editor, which is used to style text. (Ex: options for bold, underline, font size, font color, alignment, etc.) This works great for simple notification emails or short email messages to send to leads.
