Hello everyone - based on Email on Acid’s own research that emails should stay under 100KB to avoid triggering spam filters, does that size include the plain and rich text versions too?

We tested using only HTML email, not a multipart email. I’m not sure if the size of the plain-text version would make a difference.

For most emails, the plain text version should be 1KB or less, so hopefully it won’t make a big impact even if it does count towards the limit.
