Caveat: apparently it only works when the svg contains no text; any text content might be visible (in addition to the fallback) in clients that don't understand svg. [...] [more]

tactics How to Add a Snow Effect to an Email Using CSS Animation

The snow effect is essentially a snowflake or shape in a div that you animate using CSS.

tactics HTML Bulletproof Background images in email

At Action Rocket we keep abreast of all the latest hacks and fixes to ensure our clients get the best emails.

tactics Full Page Intro Animations in Email

This is a simple technique to show a brief animation of an object or text against a blank page and having the rest of the email “fade in” after the animation ends. This is a follow on of a previous example with fade in text animation. I got the inspiration from Apple’s MacBook website featuring a Macbook appearing over a blank page.
