Real time HTML Newsletter Acid Test

with 2 comments

Does anyone has anything to say about the lack of Email standards with rendering of HTML emails across different mail clients?

I find it particularly frustrating trying to integrate an HTML email that is cross-mail client compatible.

So we have decided to build this new live Acid Test tool which will check for compliance across the following mail clients per HTML email.

Apple Mail
Outlook 2007
Lotus Notes 08
Yahoo Mail
MSN Web Mail
Windows Live Mail
Mozilla thunderbird

The Acid test works along side the newsletter creation tool/HTML Editor which will process the HTML syntax of an email, check across 17 CSS properties that are partially/not supported across some of the mail clients and show the user a score for each mail client.

Have a look at this video tutorial to see how Maxmail provides you with a robust solution to combat the increasingly frustrating job of making sure your HTML emails look the same across every mail client.

We would love to hear your comments or suggestions regardnig an ACID Test of HTML emails – Help us improve it.
