tactics Correcting Outlook DPI Scaling Issues

Outlook DPI scaling is one of the most common problems encountered when developing emails and supporting Outlook (alongside the 1px horizontal line issue). The severity of impact caused by DPI scaling depends on what you’re trying to accomplish with the email’s design/layout/structure, and how the email is coded.
