How To Articles

One effective strategy for making your emails more accessible to a larger audience is by utilizing multi-part MIME email in AWeber. This feature allows you to include both HTML and plain text versions of your message in a single email, catering to the preferences of your recipients. In this guide, I will walk you through the process of setting up multi-part MIME email in AWeber and provide some personal tips to help you along the way.

Why Multi-Part MIME?

Before we dive into the technical details, let’s discuss the benefits of using multi-part MIME email. By offering both HTML and plain text versions, you can accommodate recipients who prefer text-based emails or those whose email clients may not support HTML formatting. This ensures that your message is readable and impactful, regardless of the recipient’s email preferences or limitations.

Step 1: Creating Your HTML Email

To get started, you’ll need to create your HTML email using your preferred email editor or AWeber’s drag-and-drop builder. This is where you can get creative and add your personal touch to the email. Whether it’s a catchy subject line, engaging visuals, or a compelling call-to-action, make sure to tailor the content to resonate with your audience.

Step 2: Writing the Plain Text Version

Now it’s time to create the plain text version of your email. This version should mirror the content of your HTML email, but without any formatting or HTML tags. Remember to make it easily readable and ensure that the message conveys the same information as your HTML version. Adding a personalized touch to this plain text version can make a difference in connecting with your recipients.

Step 3: Combining HTML and Plain Text Versions with Multi-Part MIME

After you’ve created both versions of your email, it’s time to combine them with multi-part MIME. AWeber makes this process seamless. When composing your email, navigate to the “Text” tab in the email composer. Here, you’ll find an option to add your plain text version. Copy and paste the content from your plain text email into the provided field.

It’s important to note that AWeber will automatically generate the multi-part MIME structure when you include both versions. This ensures that the email client can choose the appropriate format based on the recipient’s preferences.

Step 4: Reviewing and Sending

Before sending your multi-part MIME email, it’s crucial to review both the HTML and plain text versions to ensure they align with your intentions. Take a moment to proofread the content, check the formatting, and make any necessary adjustments. A test send to yourself or a colleague can be helpful in identifying any potential issues.


Setting up multi-part MIME email in AWeber is a simple yet effective way to improve the accessibility and readability of your emails. By offering both HTML and plain text versions, you can cater to a wider range of recipients and increase the chances of your message being received and understood. Adding your personal touch and making the content engaging and relevant will further enhance the impact of your emails. Give it a try and see the difference it makes in reaching your audience!
