I realise this won’t effect many, as not a lot here do much in the way of email marketing, either for themselves or others. I do, 59k sent out already today, and after an update to Windows and I think Outlook overnight, HTML templates that last weeked rendered fine on my test machine (latest Windows & latest Outlook) are now messed up in Outlook. Again.
The latest stats I can find is Outlook usages is around 9%, with almost all of it corporate.
I can make beautiful HTML emails for clients and myself, that when they get opened in Outlook then need a ton of changes made, often ruining the genera look, to get them to look right.
Pretty much every other email client renders even complex HTML emails perfectly, but Outlook seems to be positively going backwards.
I’m now at the point of considering removing compatibility from Outlook, except perhaps for my corporate clients, for whom perhaps I need to start creating super simple newsletters, if they want to retain Outlook compatibility (they all do).
Anyone else in the same place, having the same thoughts?
