- Doesn't support attribute selectors e.g. *[class].CLASS-NAME. This came in to fix an issue with Yahoo! Mail showing the mobile version, however that's now been fixed by Yahoo! so these should be fine to revert back to standard class names.
- According to various people there seems to be a 8,192 character limit on styles so if you go over this limit - Gmail will strip all of your styles .Luckily their processor strips any whitespace but it would be good chance to remove any unused styling if you have any.
How did you get buy-in to improve a specific tool, project, approach, or anything else to bring your email marketing to the next level?
Firstly, I'm going to look at this from a Product Marketing perspective. Since I first started designing emails 11 years ago (ouch!), my job role in my company has changed considerably. From Junior to Senior Designer designing emails for small startups to huge automated email campaigns, and now to UX / UI Designer for our overall product that our clients use.
Because I've been there on the sharp side of things e.g. conference calls in our clients timezone, being shouted at on a conference call loud enough for our whole office to hear because an email doesn't look right on Lotus Notes 7 etc... My knowledge and experiences are often enough to get buy-in by itself. This might come across as big headed - but please it's not meant to be!
My point is - that only when you've experienced what your customers pain points are - can you truly speak with the authority to help improve something, which in my case is our actual product.
Initial things I've noticed through the #EmailGeeks slack chat are:
I've tried giving that a go but I'm still having no luck. I can see my media queries in the webmail version, but they don't seem to be making it through to the Gmail App (Android).
I had an app update this morning (v 22.214.171.124426830.release) but I can't see any difference yet when I've sent a responsive email.
Need to test further though.
I had an idea that it might be down to images not being downloaded by default, but I wasn't sure whether this would account entirely for such a high percentage difference. With newer android phones moving more towards using a Gmail hybrid - I wonder whether some of the stats currently being attributed as Gmail, should actually be set to Android?
