REST API: GET message body

Warning: You are viewing the documentation for the old REST API. We recommend using version 2 of the REST API.

If you want to retrieve the body of a message sent with Marketing Suite you can send a GET request to the following URL:$id/body/$type?access_token=xxx

where $id is the unique string that identifies a message and $type is the format for the message. Don't forget to add your access token! This method can not be called with a PHP script.


The message can be returned in three formats:

  • MIME: Internet standard for email
  • HTML: HyperText Language Markup/internet markup
  • Text: Simple plain text

Depending on the format the output looks different. MIME includes all the headers for example, while text only shows the plain text.
