Note – this is an improved fix over our previous Outlook background fix.
This fix is something I’ve been looking at for a while – and allows html emails to display a full page background image in both outlook 2007 and webmail clients, and for the background image to degrade to a background colour when images are disabled.
In the spirit of Jason Rodriguez’ excellent “Email as an open book” post, we’ve decided to launch our own Labs blog. Here we’ll be discussing common code methods, looking at responsive email techniques and posting experiments in new email code. Over time we’ll also bring over and update some of the HTML based articles from Email Design Review.
Please drop us a comment to let us know what you’d like to see covered, and follow @actionrocket for updates.
