    Newsletter

    Hello,

    I need help with a html email newsletter that I designed. I am using campaign monitor to deploy the newsletter when I preview it everything seems great and when I test the email I get some pretty mixed results. I sent the test to my three different email addresses, the rubber is that when I check the newsletter on my iphone I have no inline css problems. When I check using the computer some of the headers don't have their color and some do. I have checked the newsletter in IE, Chrome, and Firefox. The email accounts I used were gmail, Hotmail, and yahoo. They all behave the same, except when I check the email on my iphone everything works perfectly. I just read somewhere that the inline should be in the body not the head? Is that true? I used !important after every color. Does anyone have any suggestions???

    Designing an email newsletter is nothing like designing webpages for browsers.

    Email clients are very limited in what they can do, and as you've discovered, results vary wildly.

    Without seeing your code, I can only point you to some general recommendations:

    http://www.sitepoint.com/code-html-email-newsletters/

    http://kb.mailchimp.com/article/how-to-code-html-emails

    http://help.hubspot.com/articles/Bes...es-design-code

    http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/ht...h-html-emails/

    Yes, for the most part, it's best to use inline styles, rather than linked CSS files to ensure that your styling is applied. Some email clients and webmail services automatically discard linked stylesheets.

    Some email clients strip out all styles except inline styles, so to be safe, you need them inline. CampaignMonitor has some good CSS support info, such as what is and isn't supported in email clients: http://www.campaignmonitor.com/css/

                            For the last few decades, sports fans in the Twin Cities have fought a brave and losing battle against the elements to watch their teams play. A new stadium, planned for completion in 2016 for the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings, 
                            is trying a new tactic in its quest to keep its fans comfortable in the harsh winters: Let the sunshine in.

                    For all of modern humanity’s technological prowess, the best chemistry lab on the planet is arguably still owned by mother nature. On Tuesday, Tim McDonnell at Mother Jones spotted work by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, among others, that may lead to a powerful new enzyme for producing cellulosic biofuels. And they did this by studying, of all things, leafcutter ants.

                <h10>Futuristic Electric Cars Ditch Battery Charging</h10>
                <p>By: Alyssa Danigelis<br>
                    Recent innovations in wireless charging for electric vehicles could mean losing the need for batteries altogether. 
                    No, really. While modern Teslas are working on new wireless recharging, particularly for electric vehicles in urban areas, 
                    one Swedish project is testing a system designed to power EVs along the highway.

                <h39>Intermittency Of Renewables?…Not So Much</h39>
                <p>By: Zachary Shahan via CleanTechnica<br>
                    Below was a great summary comment (if a bit simplified in parts) from one of our readers on one of our posts last week. I thought it deserved a few more eyes. 
                    Also, I happened to go back to a roundtable discussion of utility CEOs today that supports the overall “the ‘intermittency’ of renewable energy issue is overhyped” argument. 
                    More on that below the reader comment.

                <p>By: Kyodo<br>
                    BONN – Japan is expected to become the world’s largest solar energy market this year, with the installation of new solar power 
                    systems more than doubling capacity, a recent report by a U.S. research firm says.
                    The domestic solar power market is forecast to reach $19.8 billion (¥1.91 trillion) in 2013, 
                    surpassing Germany, which was the biggest market from 2009 to 2012, according to the report by IHS Inc.

                <p>By: Natalie Pompilio<br>
                    Our generals see our dependence on oil as a huge vulnerability, and climate change as a "threat multiplier." Can their leadership make a difference?
                    Retired Brig. Gen. Steven Anderson calls himself  “an accidental environmentalist.” 
                    His epiphany about climate change started with a tactical problem.

                    The US Department of Defense is currently engaged in a "hard push" to significantly reduce 
                    dependence on fossil fuels in an effort to shrink risks on the battlefield.
                    "Historically, energy has been a decisive factor in warfighting," explained DoD official Oliver Fritz.

Power-generating insole lets you charge your gadgets with your steps</h44>
                <p>By: Megan Treacy<br>
                    Piezoelectric power is something we cover quite often. Designers and inventors are always coming up with new ways to harvest 
                    the energy of our steps, whether from embedded devices in our shoes or in the floors and sidewalks we walk upon. It just seems like the kinetic 
                    energy from our everyday movements is low-hanging fruit for power generation.

The Green Side of Drones: Science and Environmental Apps Abound</h46>

                    It appears that “drones” are here to stay. And Silicon Valley drone makers are going beyond military and
                    spy applications, creating new environmental uses for unmanned aerial vehicles.
                    On Friday afternoons, you’ll usually find Chris Anderson out by the Berkeley Marina, tinkering with his squadron of drones.

The US added 723 megawatts of solar power during the first 3 months of 2013</h47>
                <p>By: Michael Graham Richard<br>
                    During the first quarter of 2013, the U.S. has added 723 megawatts (MW) of new solar capacity to its power grid, 
                    a 33% growth rate year-on-year. This accounted for over 48% of all new electric capacity installed during that period.

Utility Trucks Going Hybrid In DOE Initiative</h48>
                <p>By: Nino Marchetti <br>
                    The continued push for the reduction of carbon emissions in the trucking space got a boost recently as a consortium of entities unveiled plans for a 
                    number of large plug-in hybrid trucks to be used by publicly owned utilities and municipal electric companies. The planned deployment of these vehicles 
                    is part of a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) electrification initiative.

    The first thing I'd try is getting rid of those out-of-place p tags that are around other tags.

    The h tags only go from h1 to h6. Anything else is invalid HTML.

    You can reuse these tags throughout your code--they aren't unique.

    Your <styles> tag and CSS will likely be stripped in some email clients and webmail services. It's best to use inline styles for maximum compatibility. Yes, by doing this, there will be a lot of duplicate CSS code, but unfortunately, that's the way it needs to be done.
