Is there a way to add a simple black edge/border line around my entire email within the editor? It seems like such a simple thing, but I've only ever been able to find a left border line and a right border line, not the entire email. We'd like to accomplish this without coding (but would be open to hearing any solution). Any ideas?

Outside of hard-coded borders, most templates won't offer the option to surround the entire content area in a single border line in order to keep the content area as flexible as possible. You can use some creative options in conjunction with the left and right borders (which you've already mentioned above) to a similar effect though.

I created a "Support Copy" mailing in your unsent tab from one of your recent drafts, where I left the left and right border settings that you already had in place, but added some divider lines to the top and bottom content slots in the flexible/drag-&-drop region, and adjust the padding and margin to ensure they fit snuggly to the border edges you already had in place.

Here are the settings I used for those divider blocks:

You may also be interested in having a border hard-coded into a template- which our Services and design teams would be able to assist with. Don't hesitate to let me know if you're interested in having a template tailored to include a hard-coded border around the content area- I'll be happy to connect you with our services desk for that!
