Problematic Styles in your HTML Email
Problematic Styles in your HTML Email may cause your message to be thrown into junk/spam folder or even completely blocked by some mail programs. When you design your newsletter, please try to avoid the following problems:
- DON’T leave unbalanced tags and invalid tags in your HTML email. When using HTML emails, don’t use tools, like MS Word, which often leave meaningless tags behind.
- DON’T use iframe, object, and import or include HTML tags in HTML mail messages; they are commonly used in viruses, and some virus-blockers will block them.
- When you use CSS in your HTML mail, your must write your CSS code this way: <span style=”you css properties here”> ….</span>. Otherwise, your message may not be displayed the way you expect in some mail programs.
- DON’T type all in capital letters.
- DON’T just use a graphic as your entire email message.
