Known Issues in Email Rendering and Display
MailPoet designer editor was made to help you create incredible templates for your subscribers across all email clients. However, versions of Outlook from Outlook 2007 to present are known to have multiple rendering issues which are not exclusive to MailPoet.
Below are known issues or bugs with the rendering of templates designed with our editor.
Buttons with a label on 2 lines or more are vertically collapsed to 1 line
Happens on: Outlook 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016 on Win 7.
What can you do? Try to have a short line in the button and set the width to be wide.
Social icons: no padding or margins between icons in some Outlook versions
Happens on: Outlook 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019
What can you do? Choose to use social icons without a background colour.
Nested lists: the editor doesn't display them but it should
What can you do? Nothing. MailPoet needs to fix it to display nested list in our Editor.
- When forwarding an email, the email does not render the same in the recipient's email client;
- A few email clients have limited support for CSS background images and for some of the properties for controlling how the background image appears, not displaying the background image at all;
- We don't recommend copy/pasting the content from another editor to our own editor. It can affect the rendering and cause issues in many email clients.
