Email Button Rollover Effect -Yes or No

Is it possible to add an image rollover effect - something created in photoshop.  I'm guessing no as it would involve some scripting and I'm also guessing it wouldn't work using css

Thanks in advance

Hi torweb, you can't create traditional rollover-style buttons, as the javascript will most probably get stripped out. That said, you can experiment with CSS3 - here's a couple of techniques for creating buttons. Folks like Panic have been using techniques like these in their emails to Apple Mail and iOS clients, such as in these emails.

Of course, the caveat here is that most email clients will only see the 'degraded' version of the button. However, the effects in CSS3-friendly email clients can be spectacular.
