Early access to Beta versions of Mail Designer 365

What is a beta version?

Beta versions are versions that are available for testing. Please note: These are not the final versions that will be released to the public. However, many people may want to try a beta version. It gives them a chance to check out some of the more current changes and improvements to the software. People can also report bugs, glitches, and other flaws to the developers. This is helpful because issues can then be addressed before the public release of an official version.
