Deliverability advice: Test the rendering of your emails!
Here's a deliverability tip for your email strategy: Test your emails. It's the best way to ensure your recipients will see them correctly.
Ask what an HTML coder thinks of email…the response is rarely complimentary! In fact, HTML integration for email is a complex art. While in classic web development it is necessary to test and retest with each different browser, the problem is even more complicated with email.
Indeed, it is not uncommon that your email campaigns will be opened using over a dozen different email clients. Each has their own variable HTML standards…old memories might be resurfacing here. It is often said that to code a good email, you should code the HTML as you would have in 1999 (even if I don't agree with this idea entirely)!
Despite this complexity, it is essential to ensure that all email sent is correctly displayed. Otherwise, you may damage your sender reputation.
