Is tbody element necessary?

Should I include the tbody element in my tables or is it not necessary?

I use the <table> <tr> and <td> elements in my tables. Is that enough?

Hi devotee, welcome to the forums! Yes, in my experience, <tbody> isn't necessary in HTML email design - in times past it was used to group and style 'body content', but on its own has no visual impact on an email design. In most situations, <tbody> can be safely removed.
