    thanks very much for this. it was so helpful to me.

  12. Thanks for this tutorial! Very helpful! :)
    I’ve never coded any e-mails before, and this helped me a lot!

  13. How about using inline CSS rather than tables? Is that acceptable?

  14. Great tutorial, thank you!

    Thank you Kathryn – your article is very helpful. I know that it isn’t new post but in email marketing coding matter changes aren’t so frequent. This raport is complement, up to date of your article: Best Practices for Email Coding

  16. Sadly there was no information on how to actually get the code into an email and get it send…. This would be nice (if the assumption is that the reader is new to all of this).

    • We’re assuming you’ve got the basics down. Besides, it would be different for each email provider. Generally, in the text editor, there’s a tab or link to access the html. And if you wanted to re-use the layout, when selecting your template, there’s usually an option to create your own.

  17. Thanks for the tutorial! Especially the code snippets. If you don’t have the option of including images and need to store them on an external server, do you have a size recommendation? Should they by 600 wide and should you specify the dimensions in the code, or will that get stripped out?
