Reduce Width of Message In Aweber

Hello Fellow Members,

I am using Aweber as my autoresponder service. I sent a test email message to my email and the problem I am having is when I click to open the test message, the content in my email expands too far out making it very difficult for anyone to read. Here's an example:

This is how it looks in my email:

pppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp

Usually when anyone receives an email from a product being offered the content looks like this:

pppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp
pppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp
pppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp

Can someone provide me some guidance on how to reduce the with of the content??? I would greatly appreciate it:-)

Kind Regards,

Ricardo

We recommend that you set the character width to 60 and have short paragraphs. That will make your newsletters a lot easier to digest and your subscribers will keep reading them.

Hey rarbois, I've been writing autoresponders for a bit and 55 characters is the perfect width for readability. With out tools you can type this at the top or bottom of your text and use it as a guide:

012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890

This will help you not go over and make it look pretty when people
read it.

I usually use Notepad++ to write my stuff I plan on copying into the browser. One of the cool features of this program is that even with "word wrap" turned on, you can see which "character" on the line you are on. So once see you're around character 60, just "return" to the next line.
