Inline your CSS before sending

Email is notorious for inconsistent CSS support. Therefore you should always inline your CSS before sending.

Sending emails directly from your codebase or using a developer service?

For an API service (like Mailgun, SendGrid, Postmark) you need to inline the CSS before sending. See email-inlined.html for an example.

You can use this Email CSS Inliner or a module like Juice to do this automatically.

  • Copy all of email.html
  • Paste the HTML as the source into the inliner
  • Copy the HTML output and use this as the email template you send

Sending emails using a marketing service like Mailchimp?

Use the template email.html as is. They'll put the CSS inline for you when you put together your campaign.

Images in email

When inserting images remember to include the following attributes or risk them breaking in different clients:

  • src
  • alt
  • width
  • height
  • border

Example:

<img src="https://absolute-path-to-image.jpg" alt="Useful alt text" width="500" height="300" border="0" style="border:0; outline:none; text-decoration:none; display:block;">
