Where did the "Preview" go for Mass Mail in the admin panel!?

I liked that!  Will / can we have that back?

Yeah I noticed that!  I forgot to change it to HTML!  (Because there WASN'T a preview!)

I even copied and pasted it to a 1.1.1 install to check it looked ok!

If you set it to HTML mode, then you will see Rich text formater :)

In both modes you see original email's content which will be sent. Why do you need preview? :)

I need a preview because I sent out a big mass mail with lots of html in it.  To do this I create it in Dreamweaver then paste into mas mail window.  I F O R G O T to change from txt to html.  I mistook the formatting in the message as text.  Not seeing a preview I thought it was ok. 
I am doing everything I can to blame everyone else for this!  It cant honestly be my fault!  LOL

@Addenster, it is an unexpected change is all.  I will learn as a responsible adult (allegedly) to be more thorough in my messages and CHECK before clicking send.

Thanks for the heads up.   You win this time!!!   :o)
