HTML email templates [Mar. 23rd, 2009|12:29 pm]

Know much about designing them? I think I've made a bad one. Text only email clients are hacking mine apart. Have you made one before? Any advice for me?
And soon? A Phost.

Oh, is there any way to detect if a client wants Text Only and send them that instead, or do you just let it mangle your HTML?

I read the guidelines on a few site and it seems that they say lots of "never use CSS", ect. The clients which receive text only do make a mess of things, but I think that is a risk that comes with using HTML in email.
