I'm at wits end. Even on a very simple template like the one I reference below, my client is experiencing issues in Outlook (2007+). Doesn't seem to matter if I do things old school, with tables, or new school with all css….each campaign still comes up with issues.
The template is here http://davidbailey.net/aih/
The screenshot of outlook is here http://davidbailey.net/aih/aih.jpg
It works totally fine in Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo.
Any thoughts or assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I took a look at the CSS and here are the main issues:
- Floats are not supported in all e-mail clients - use old-school tables
- Margin & Padding are not fully supported - use nested tables to create horizontal spacing and <DIV>'s to create vertical spacing. (i.e. <DIV style="font-size:8px;"> </DIV>)
- Overflow is not supported
- Align text using inline style in the DIV or P using align="left", align="right, etc.
Overall it was designed using techniques for websites, but e-mails require old-school methods to be fully compatible.
