HTML emails in Outlook 07/10 don’t render background images. Thanks for the fix, Brian Thies! http://www.campaignmonitor.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=3862
So it’s getting around the Web quite a bit lately that Outlook 2007 and 2010 no longer render HTML emails properly. The biggest issue relates to background images. At MAF (www.maf.org) where I work, I create the marketing emails that go out. I only realized this issue about a month ago because I was using Microsoft Entourage 2004 (Outlook for Mac) and it works fine. I have since installed Outlook ’07 for testing purposes and have had a major headache getting it to render the emails properly.
As I usually do, I asked Google to help me solve the problem and I eventually found this post by Brian Thies on the Campaign Monitor forum: http://www.campaignmonitor.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=3862. I tried his suggestion and it worked great!
Since I found something that might be useful for someone else, I wanted to post the link here, just in case it could help someone else.
