Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem.
I've not been able to find much on Google so thought I'd post here.
A company I am working for uses Mailcontroller (an anti-virus, anti-spam programme).
It seems to corrupt code by adding in "defanghtml"
<table width="560" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" style="margin-left:20px; margin-top:10px">
<td width="256" style="color:#660099; font-size:12px; font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">The days are getting longer, the Easter
<table width="560" border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 defanghtml_style="margin-left:20px; margin-top:10px">
<td width="256" defanghtml_style="color:#660099; font-size:12px; font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">The days are getting longer, the Easter
The consequence is that none of the style tags work....and a nicely designed email looks horrible.
I'm curious if anyone else is aware of this problem, and more vitally if anyone has come up with any solutions?
Hey Adam, seems like the same problem discussed here: http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/showthread.php?t=158600
It is not likely something you can change from the sending side I'm afraid.
Thanks for the reply Matthew.
Yes, that link is describing the same problem.
I've managed to come up with a basic workaround, including font face and size tags etc to ensure at least some style is applied to the email.
I'm sure that this is going to become a more and more widespread issue, so something to bear in mind!
it might be issue with some email client. ex:outlook exp.
can u try without inline style sheet..
instead for using the style inside the html tag.. try to use some classes and write the class definition in the top of the page..
i hope it will works
Hi - just registered to post the same q's - what is odd is that sometimes style works and sometimes it doesn't ... its the randomness of why it can sometimes be allowed through that is bugging me! If anyone does find a work around that would be amazing.
