I wanted to run it through some spam checkers before sending it out. I wasn't able to find a way to access it on my own.

When you say you want to access the HTML version, do you mean the HTML code behind the mailing? If so, there isn't HTML behind the complete mailing, but you can view the HTML behind each individual text box by placing your cursor in a text box and clicking the formatting toolbar icon that looks like this:



Is this what you're seeking?

I do mean the HTML code behind the mailing. I was looking for the complete HTML code for the entire email, so the individual text boxes aren't exactly what I need. Thank you for your response!

If you send a test of the email to yourself, you can right click to view the source code. If you have trouble doing that right from the email itself, use the "view online" link at the top, then do it from your browser. I think you lose the header info from the email, but this should show you the html code of the body of the email.

Ah, sorry you can't get exactly what you need. Out of curiosity, what type of spam checker are you using to run the HTML?

As a follow up to this, I am partnering with another company and they are sending a mailing on our behalf, to their contact list. Is there a way to get the code which (including the purchased custom template) so the other company can make it look to follow our brand?

Is the other company sending on your behalf using Emma? If so, we might need a bit more information, because it sounds as though there might be a permissions issue. To send to someone using Emma, the recipient must be:
  • Someone who is a customer, member or subscriber of your business or organization,
  • Someone who has specifically asked to receive your emails by opting in or signing up in some way, or
  • Someone who has bought a product or service from you in the past 18 months.
That means that if the members of their contact list aren't your customers, haven't asked to receive your emails or haven't done business with you, they can't be sent to.

But to answer your question, there isn't a way to get the template's code, and it won't work outside of Emma. Were you looking to move it to another Emma account?

No, they weren't sending from Emma. They were promoting one of our programs by sending from their internal servers to their mail list. It was to be branded to look like it came from us, but since our email branding is via Emma we didn't have email HTML design to share, i.e. we didn't send a company branded email.

I see. What you might consider doing the next time you need that to happen is right-clicking and saving your header image to use elsewhere. It won't be HTML, but perhaps in the work that company is doing, they're able to use an image?

You could also click the image and drag it to your desktop; this screenshot attempts to show which piece of the template would move:
