Editting an email in multiple tabs

If you edit your email in more than one browser tab simultaneously, the tabs will keep synchronised so you don't lose your work. In case of a conflict between your tabs, you can decide which version to keep in the dialog box that will appear above the email body editor.

Click your value to keep the version in the current tab or new value to keep the version in the other tab. It will automatically synchronise to the current tab.

If there is more than one conflict, you can:

  • choose which version to keep one by one using the method above, or
  • click Ignore all changes to keep all data from the current tab or Apply or changes to keep all data from the other tab. It will automatically synchronise to the current tab.

If you ignore the warning, continue to compose your email and click Apply all changes after some time, you will lose the changes you have made since the warning appeared. You can undo this by pressing Ctrl+Z.


Attachments and inline pictures do not synchronise between tabs!
