Home › Forums › CSS › CSS styles for Outlook newsletter emails
I created an html template for a blog newsletter, and will use Captec’s CRM platform to send out these emails to clients.
Only issue is :
My CSS styles are not “understood” by Outlook (and Mail) and the fonts are completely off.
I’ve tried adding a conditional comment, designed for MSO, but it didn’t work.
Any advice would be very helpful !
Conditional comments for CSS aren’t (as I recall) recognised in emails generally.
There’s a reason most email templates are still based on actual tables.
For a comprehensive guide on what is and isn’t supported by various email clients I recommend https://www.campaignmonitor.com/css/
It comes down to the basics really. If you try and get too special it breaks.
Best to strip it down and just do a lot of linking to a main webpage.
Thank you for your response.
Mmhh.. too bad for the conditional formatting. : /
When you say “based on actual tables”.
This is actually how my page is built.
If I include the styles directly into each table, do you think it would work?
Thank you for the tips.. I’ll check your link as well.
