Hi there APi,

Emma's proofer is there to let you know what to check for, or be aware of, as you're creating a mailing. The proofing issue that checks for the amount of text in your email is really in place to ensure you're aware that you're getting into an email size that may cause some delivery issues. I emphasize the word "may" there because there isn't necessarily a fixed email size that will be too large, as there are a lot of factors that can affect what a receiving server will or will not accept. We always recommend sending a test of your mailings prior to sending to your audience so you can get some real-world examples of how that mailing will show up in the inbox.

Our best practices recommendation would suggest that you keep the overall amount of text in your email to a minimum- linking out to landing pages for a more in-depth look into some of the content you want to introduce with your audience base. I'd definitely recommend taking a look at this Resource Center article for some great ideas on engaging your audience with simple, stylish, and effective emails.
