  • (0:38) Email rendering in the Outlook App: Courtney Fantinato outlines recent quirks she’s seeing in the Outlook apps on iOS and Android where the app is losing responsive design support.
  • (4:11) Outlook.com’s latest bug and how to fix gaps under images: Rémi Parmentier breaks down a new fix for image gaps in Outlook.com which is as simple as adding id=”OWATemporaryImageDivContainer” to your image.
  • (11:21) AOL to begin managing Verizon’s email service: AOL will be transitioning any verizon.net email address to their servers over the next 90 days. Customers will have 30 days to to migrate over to AOL and if they fail to do so their unmigrated accounts will be deleted and thus cause hard bounces for email marketers. You can do a dedicated engagement campaign, but since this rollout is happening in waves, it may not lineup with subscribers and cause confusion. Since Verizon accounts will most likely be a small minority for most, we recommend waiting for hard bounces and removing them from your lists.
