Hi, I made a test with campaign monitor, with some hotmail addresses and the problem is the background image doesn’t show. Can you help me with this issue? Thanks a lot.

Hi Dariux, This is actually pretty normal with some of the services like hotmail – the design is coded to degrade as gracefully as possible without losing the integrity of the content, but some email services simply don’t perform up to the standards of the main ones. Hope this makes sense :)

one thing that i would love to see added would be a button for the “Read more”. a colorful button will catch the readers attention much more than the text link.

Good call – I might include this in a future update… although, you can always add it to the sidebar if you’re really in a rush :) Just use the image PSD provided, drop in your button graphic, hit save, upload it, and you should be good to go.

Cheers!

I had trouble using this with Aweber. The preview is fine but when I sent a test email the bg images didnt show up in gmail?

Correct – some email clients don’t allow backgrounds, which is why the design has been built to degrade gracefully. :)

This email looks awfully similar to Mint.com email template, anyone else think so?

MDNW

I’ve seen tons of templates using a paper style, each of which inspired me in their own ways… just noticed that mint does too; very cool :) I’ve gotta say that this template is significantly different though once you get past the common paper-on-a-neutral-background paradigm. Font usage, column usage, logo usage, background usage, code structure, CSS approach, image usage, aspect ratio, width, header usage, etc. etc. is all dramatically different. This template also comes with over 30 different variations if you begin multiplying the color sets and layout variations. I suppose someone could take one of the colors and layouts and use it to copy mint (or anyone else using the same design paradigm), but they’d have to work pretty hard to rip them off, which I highly don’t recommend. Anyways, thanks for the comment :)

You may have already answered this, but does this work for mailchimp.com? Thanks!

Love the design—very crisp and professional. I’m seeing a similar issue as jcws649 did above. The body appears to be a few pixels off in the live preview…sent you a screenshot. Looking forward to putting this template into action!

Just bought the template and set it up! Love the way you did the page-it looks more substantial-almost like a very heavy weight, expensive paper.

Masthead does look about 1 px off to left from body. I haven’t tried to fix it, yet, but it looks like a pretty straightforward issue.

As always your work is inspired!

Thanks for the comment :) A lot of people are seeing the 1px bug in browsers, but it should look fine in the email programs, which is what this template is meant for :)

If anyone has issues with hotmail and 1px spacing issues -

although the author is partially correct when he says: ’ but some email services simply don’t perform up to the standards of the main ones. ’ ,

this hotmail issue can be fixed by adding :

style=”display:block” into any image tag that has a height smaller than 8px

eg :

img src=”images/yourimagename.gif” width=”1” height=”1” hspace=”0” vspace=”0” style=”display:block”

Also make sure your table and td tags have heights allocated in pixels.

There is also a fix for gmail and yahoo!. PM me if you want it.

hope this helps.

I didn’t need this file, but I admire you so I bought it just to have a quick look at your work.

Your designs are obviously fantastic, but I must say that your packaging and documentation is TOP NOTCH and I would recommend this and any of your files to the entire marketplace.

Great work, epicara!

Congratulations on your mail template. It’s fantastic! I can not receive mail in Outlook correctly. The background does not appear, etc …

You know how I fix it?

Hi there – in lots of versions Outlook will disable background images altogether. This isn’t a limitation of the code, the template, or something you are doing wrong – it’s just Outlook being Outlook. I’ve designed the template so that it degrades gracefully and the content remains in tact – but the background issue in Outlook probably won’t change unless they update their system. Hope that helps :)

I’m feeling a bit robbed here. You say it works gmail but when looking at the newsletter in it, all background images are stripped leaving a pretty bare email.

Also gmail strips styles (which should have been embedded in the table) so the newsletter is not all smooth like the demo, it’s fairly raw.

Credit is due for PSD ’s provided and the column layouts are handly, but that’s about it.

I spent about 5hrs recoding it to look pretty similar in gmail and nothing gets stripped.. it now looks like it does in browser.

Not having a go mate, the design is nice, but you honestly can’t say this works in gmail.

Hi Rob, I’ve removed Gmail from the list of supported email clients for the time being… I didn’t have any issues with it during testing (nor did the testers), but since I’ve heard from a handful of users who are encountering problems with it. Until I resolve the situation and figure out what’s causing this inconsistency, I’ll not be advertising it as Gmail compatible. More updates to come as I look into the matter. Thanks for the note, sorry for any frustration that this created. To help me out a little – what are you using to send your mail messages?

Thanks! Brandon

Hey Brandon.

I’m using the webmail client that comes with Rackspace, not sure what it is called.

Basically it offers code view and it sends as is, but gmail strips everything above and below the table, so you have to embed the styles in the table.

Hey Brandon

Check out the source on this page: http://rocksampler.com/blog/newsletter/200912/

This newsletter looks 98% pretty similar in gmail.

Hell Brandon!

I’m also having problems in Gmail and Outlook 2007. I’ve sent you an email with some screen shots.

Thank you, Costin

It’s a great design, thanks. It was just what we were looking for and we have published the first edition, but it does not work in Outlook 2007 and Gmail. We have tried a couple of workarounds but cannot get it to work. Please let us know if you fix it. Thanks, Buddy

Hi epicera

I greatly look forward to the update for Gmail and Outlook2007.

I bought this template in a bit of a hurry because the design is EXACTLY what I was looking for and I needed to get the mailing list for the project I was working on up and running immediately! (Which is the reason I was looking for a premium template rather than just coding one myself).

It’s a great design, mate. :)

The promo material on the live preview said “Works in all email clients” and (foolishly) I didn’t read this comments thread or I would have been aware of the issue.

Had I read this thread, I would have passed because an email template that doesn’t work with Gmail is, in my opinion, next to useless.

[I’m relatively new to Envato so lesson learnt right there. Note to self: ALWAYS read the comments before purchasing! Duh!]

Also, I notice that the header and footer don’t align correctly in Firefox. They’re fine with IE, but not Firefox. It looks about 1px or 2px out to the left (or maybe the body is out 1px to the right???).

This may or may not be an issue in different email clients (I don’t know), but it’s no good for a web-version of a newsletter (as in “Click here to read the latest newsletter in your browser”).

I very much look forward to an updated download when this issue has been resolved.

Cheers,

TheNightOwl

Hi Night Owl, Per the comments above – I was only recently made aware of the issue with Gmail – it never showed up during any of the testing. As soon as the update is ready, I’ll be posting it here :) B

Disappointed, It doesn’t work with Outlook 2007, backgrond images stripped out. I spent 2 days trying to get it to work with Groupmail, Mailchimp, Interspire Email Marketer. Nope. Simply it doesn’t go. You can’t use styled CSS in the head, you have to inline styles in the elements. hope for a bugfix soon.
