    Nice work on the template

    I would suggust not to use padding in HTML mails.
    Padding isn’t supported by some email clients. I found out the other day when coding a new template. I replaced the padding with an extra with the same with of the padding.

    Spacer-images work also. It’s dirty but with HTML emails dirtyness is allowed.

    Hi Melvin, padding is ok if it’s done right. I tested this tem­plate using Lit­mus (Google it) and every­thing looks fine in all major email clients (Yahoo, Gmail, Outlook, Hotmail).

    Could also use spacer-images as you mentioned but it increases the size of the newsletter and speed means everything 🙂

    Thanks for your comment.

    Hi Mohammad,

    The major clients indeed do support padding. I’ve had some trouble with outlook 2003 and other desktop clients. They sometimes render emails differently. Arrgg!

    I don’t know about the spacer-images. Yes I do think they require more http requests. But.. when used correctly they still do the job, eventhough it’s a durty job. 😛

    With alle these HTML emails going around lately with huge images. I doubt a few small spacers (example: 1px height and 100px width) will make a whole lot a difference on the loadingtime.

    Think I’ll sing-up for a free account at Litmus. Thanks for the tip! Your the best. 😉

    Litmus is great, can be slow sometimes.

    Instead of using space-images, you could try using empty

    tags with the bgcolor, width and height set.

    Thanks for the template. I am new at this. Can you provide some feedback as to the steps I need to take in order to modify that template and just send it an email? Do I need any software?

    @Carolina

    It helps to know basic HTML to modify this template and you’ll be able to do this using any text editor. e.g Notepad

    You could also use a visual editor such as Adobe Dreamweaver. Free Trial here: http://www.adobe.com/products/dreamweaver/

    To send a HTML email to one address you could use something like Thunderbird ( http://en-us.www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/ ) which is free or use Microsoft Outlook.

    To send to multiple addresses you’ll need to use a service such as MailChimp ( http://www.mailchimp.com/ ) or Campaign Monitor ( http://www.campaignmonitor.com/ )

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks! Awesome. I tried Thunderbird and it works really good. I had a template I made and use already for CL. Just modified it and made it into an email. I appreciate it.

    Interestingly, MailChimp is having problems with this template. The Ribbon section gets placed off to the right (on the pop-up preview) and GMail is not displaying it properly when sent through MailChimp.

    I haven’t tested other clients yet, but hopefully I can fix it. I really like the template as a starting point for newsletters.

    Oops. There was just a TR tag missing before the ribbon TD. Insert that and everything works swimmingly.
