Email – From recent experiments don’t try and make the desktop client version responsive. I would suggest only trying to address a mobile email client with your media queries. Most of the desktop clients just can’t handle it.
Basically there is no such thing as a responsive email.
Even though you can send it as HTML there is absolutely no guarantee that the email client will render it that way. Indeed, many corporations will default to or insist on receiving ALL emails as plain text (or at best Rich Text).
Mailchimp has a bunch of table based templates you can download and play with (obviously skewed to their requirements) but you’ll soon get the idea.

+1. I hate doing HTML emails, but the rule of thumb is: style like it’s 1999.
Tables in tables in tables in tables…no room for responsiveness. Style for a max pixel width of 600px for optimal viewing, and plan it down to the pixel. Don’t use percentages, because some email clients regress on supported standards.
