      Review ofLitmusLitmus

      Used Litmus at my previous employer and found it to be easy to use, with a great selection of email clients, and plain text. Even pretty old clients that I didn't think were around anymore! The display vs what I saw in the actual client was usually pretty accurate. Occasional differences, and can take a while to run all the tests. But, with so many clients, it's understandable.
