Here's what the preview mode looks like:

When using personalization, Mailmeteor automatically replaces a variable (such as {{ firstname }}) with the corresponding value from the spreadsheet (e.g. Sally). If the value is not set in the spreadsheet, Mailmeteor will replace the variable with an empty string. This prevents you from merge failures (learn more).
While in preview mode, you can use "←" or "→" to navigate spreadsheet rows and preview how your email will appear for each recipient.

If something doesn't look right, you can edit your template in just a few clicks to make last-minute changes.
