Minimum System Requirements

MailChimp is a web-based application that works in most web browsers. There's no need to download or install any software to your computer to use MailChimp. Since you'll be working in a web browser while using MailChimp, there are a few browser-related settings you'll need to make sure are enabled.

Compatible browsers

Browser Settings

  • Make sure cookies are enabled in your browser so all elements of our application work as expected.
  • Pop-ups and JavaScript should be enabled in your browser, so you can view errors, alerts, and preview screens.
  • The minimum screen resolution should be set to 1024 x 768 for optimal viewing. If you're using a Netbook, try setting the resolution to 1200 x 800 if you're seeing things out of place in the application.
  • The latest version of Flash and/or HTML5 is required to view any of the videos on our site.

Mobile Devices

The MailChimp site is designed to be responsive and mobile compatible to allow you to work in the full version of the application on the go. You can create and edit email campaigns using the drag-and-drop editor, view and edit your lists, make account changes, and more.

When working on a mobile device, the MailChimp site will resize and adjust to any mobile device, down to a 7" tablet, but phones are not yet supported to create email campaigns. If you would like to create an email campaign on a mobile phone, you can use our Email Beamer option to create a message in your email client and send it to your MailChimp account.
