Engagement: API Connect: Enhanced Formatting Options (CSS) for HTML Mail Notifications

Our team currently uses external software to create Email Notifications to our API Subscribers. API Connect v10 offers the possibility to create mailings to all subscribers or even subscribers of distinct API products, which makes the handling for us much easier compared to the external solution.

However the options to brand these Emails are very limited and will not be accepted from our Marketing Department. It is not possible to specify inline CSS in the HTML code as the style attribute and various HTML tags are filtered out.
This has already been communicated to the API Connect developer team ( and they asked to open a RFE.
