When it comes to coding your HTML email, there are some common things to avoid. These things are often ignored by email clients, which means that your email may not display the way you want it to.
Avoid any of the following:
Web forms embedded within your email will not render/ function properly in most email clients.
If you want to use an image map, the best thing to do is slice your image and then put it back together using tables. You can then link each of the images. When using an image map, some features like heat maps in reporting may not function as expected.
Animated GIF Images
Older versions of Outlook won't display animated GIFs. They will instead only display the last frame of the animation as a static image.
CSS Positioning or Float Styles
These will be largely ignored by most email clients.
Any Programming Code
Will be stripped before the email reaches the recipients inbox.
You can't place (embed) a video into an email - however, you can link to one. Our video component lets you quickly & easily link to videos from within your email - with customisable thumbnails, play button overlays and more!
