How do I edit the formatting of an email's footer?
At the moment, my footer text is stuck on pale blue which doesn't go very well with my maroon background.
Are you referring to the color of the text in the footer? I don't think it's possible to directly change that. Did you start with a blank email template, or choose on of the pre-designed templates and edit that?
You might want to try using the blank template instead (note: if you change templates you'll lose the content you added and have to re-add it).
