I have a design built using Earthy Swirl right sidebar, but with numerous graphical modifications. However, I retained the original background image as it's perfect for the client.
however, in sending a test to myself (i'm on a mac using entourage) the background does NOT repeat. Instead, i see it once at the top, and then the background color takes over for the rest of the scroll downward.
worse, in Gmail - no background at all, but with the color.
in Yahoo - no background, and no color - just white.
anyone experienced this? is this a known problem? i did not change / adjust the background code at all in the CSS section of the header.
i appreciate any insight you may have on this. thanks!
There's not full support for background images in all email clients, however you could try adding 'background-repeat:repeat' to your CSS and this should fix a couple of your issues.
