    Hi,
    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 !
    Thank you

    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.

    Hi Paulie,
    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.
