    I have an image here that I want to repeat on y so that it extends when you add more content. I’ve placed a repeat inline style but it just wont repeat

    what am I doing wrong?

    here is the newsletter, you can see which ones need to be repeated


    Oh…this is an email.

    You won’t be able to use bg images unless you apply them in the `style` section of your HTML.

    Inline really isn’t appropriate here.

    I’d suggest MailChimp here, excellent value service with loads of free templates.


    Actually, beg to differ on the inline — for email newsletters, that only adds to compatibility, in my opinion. Though, I tend to go a bit overboard sometimes and do stuff like this:

    Text with a link to somewhere and stuff.

    Although I second @Paulie_D’s comment that MailChimp (or other services) would be recommended, if you do have to use your own templates, don’t use background images: versions of Outlook don’t support that at all. So any table cell that needs a repeating image: avoid.

    For images, stick with IMG tags, and for backgrounds, stick with just colors.
