Considering the discussion from a previous thread – would you all be interested in an email category? This category would feature “newsletter”-like templates that are built with 1996 technology (tables, inline styles, etc.).
Would this be appealing?
Yeah! Why not? How much would You price those?
I’m not sure. It’s just an idea at the moment. I’d need to discuss it with my boss.
Maybe they should cost more! Many of the younger developers here have little experience when creating a site using only tables. They’re children of the CSS generation.
Considering that they’d be only one page – maybe $5 – 8.
This is all speculation at the moment. I hate creating email newsletters for clients. So personally, I would be in favor of purchasing one here!
Nice! Well even if it’s one page and table based design I’d prefer at least 8$ and more for complex newsletters. I have experience in building newsletters and I must tell You it’s not like You throw some stuff inside the tables just because they are tables , they also need some work.
I’ll be happy to build some nice looking newsletters and maybe to hear some feedback and customer requests regarding these (header picture, side, main content etc.)
Oh, one more thing….because not all mail readers render all newsletters the same, will there be some kind of reader support like we have browser support on Site templates? And if we include almost all mail clients, what about the price then?
That will definitely be an issue – and might be the one thing that makes the category impossible. As reviewers, we have no way of checking an email newsletter for layout issues. Even if we only verified the layout in the major email clients, it would stil require too much work.
brrr, I really hate creating email newsletters ;D But I am sure I would buy some

I’ll check the mail clients list and post some suggestions.
Ok so I think we can all go with:
Google Gmail (even if it has a poor css support)
Outlook 2007 (also poor support but…
Windows Live Mail
I do them when I have to but it’s not much fun testing the different email clients. I would buy them rather than create em.This is cool, Jeffrey let’s begin No serious, if we build one template according to email standards project then we can be sure it’s the same trough all email clients we support, wright? So we don’t have to test them on all of them.
I really like this service here for sending campaigns though
