While we were creating Email Builder, we realized that there were issues when running on Apple's Safari web browser. Overall, things worked, but the editing environment was limited (e.g. no bold, no italics, no formatting at all!) and when large templates were loaded, it encountered an error and Email Builder would cease functioning.

Did you notice? We launched the final two features of our new Interest Groups page! While they're much more subtle than the sweeping revisions we made earlier
, these updates will please all of our power users. Without further ado, let me introduce them to you:
Ever wanted to mail a portion of your list before a final launch? The idea of sending a sample mailing to a portion of your list comes from Direct Mail and it can be useful in the world of email marketing. Now you can create a random segment of any of your Interest Groups at any time.
You create a segment just like you create a regular Interest Group: click the Create Interest Group
link in the yellow action box and provide a name. Now, click advanced options
then select the checkbox labeled "From a segment of another Interest Group." You should now see something like this--
Select the Interest Group you want a segment of and what percentage the segment should consist of. Click ok
and you're done.
Segments will always be displayed below their 'parent' Interest Group, but they do take up one of your available Interest Groups. You can create multiple segments of one Interest Group, and there will be no overlap of list members. You can delete segments individually, but when you delete a parent, all segments will also be deleted. You can keep creating more until you run out of members in the group, or available Interest Groups!
