tactics Designing Responsive Emails For The iPhone 6 & 6 Plus

2014-09-30 ...

antispam DMARC and report size limits

2014-09-30 ... I just saw an interesting observation on the dmarc-discuss mailing list. Apparently some of the larger providers who are implementing DMARC for inbound email may not be handling some of the grubbier corners of the spec perfectly. That’s not surprising at all – early adopters tend to deploy code that implements early versions of the draft specification – but I can see this particular issue tripping up people who are beginning to deploy DMARC for their outbound mail.

tactics This is How I Design an Email

2014-09-26 ... Just as there is more than one way to skin a cat, there is also more than one way to design and code an email. I’ve been designing, coding, and generally mucking around with email for over eight years now, and like many email marketers, I learned this age old craft on the job, as this isn’t exactly something they teach you at Uni/college.
