SVG Images in Email?

Anyone know where I can find a chart showing compatibility of email clients for SVG Graphics?

Anything special needed to get them to work?

Hey there JohnP, great question! I just ran a simple test on an SVG image (with a CSS hover state) and the results have been mixed. While Webkit-powered clients like Apple and iOS Mail breezed through the test, webmail clients don't seem to want a bar of it.

Here's the code I used, based on this demo. I figured inlining the SVG code would be far more reliable than linking to the contents of an external .svg file.

Well that failed with sinking colours! Thanks for that Ros - I'll check back in say, 7 to 10 years! ;)
