background-image in gmail

It looks like I can't make it to work. All the other properties are properly interpreted.

Any confirmation or ideas to sort it?


Thanks a lot, chr

I was forgetting, Gmail asks correctly to download the images, but after I accept, nothing happens.

Best, chr

Hi nuthinking,

Background images aren't supported in gmail, so you're out of luck.

Here's Campaign Monitor's full guide of email browser support for your reference: http://www.campaignmonitor.com/css/

That matrix looks like a battle field :(

Thanks for the info.

Ha, if it were that easy to understand I'd be out of a job :)

Long story short though, background images can be used, just prepare your email to function ok without it.
