Optimising your email for mobile devices
@mediaquery. Lets take a look at optimizing your HTML email for mobile, including the finer points of using
@mediain Campaign Monitor.
Why optimize HTML email for mobile?
To be honest, viewing HTML email on a mobile device can be plain tricky. Even on the iPhone, it’s quite common to have text automatically rescaled to a size that’s near unreadable, or in a way that can break your design. Wide emails often require horizontal scrolling, especially when there’s a large image involved. Users are becoming less content with viewing content which has not been optimised as we become more spoilt users.
By creating a separate set of styles to be used by devices that recognize the
@media query, you can optimize your emails in a similar fashion to how web pages are being optimized for the mobile today. Devices that don’t recognize
@media will degrade gracefully by simply reverting to your default styles.
