In this episode:
- (0:30) Outlook.com and Office 365’s new image gap and display problem: We outline new fixes to get around Outlook.com and Office 365’s HTML processing for behavior of viewing images within the email client, which is very similar to Gmail. The basic fix for Gmail applies here: Link all of your images!
- (4:51) Terra email client rendering: Now supported in Litmus Instant Email Previews, Terra unfortunately does not support embedded CSS or media queries. It’s very similar to Gmail before its rendering update.
- (9:41) 2017 State of Email Report: Take a look back at everything that went down in the email marketing world for 2017. It’s the perfect resource to not only refresh yourself but also help educate your teammates and internal stakeholders about email marketing challenges and solutions.
- (12:40) [Infographic] Email Attention Spans Increasing: The average time spent reading an email increased by nearly 7% to 11.1 seconds between 2011 and 2016. Mobile engagement also increased, adding to the argument that “the fold” in email design is dying.
