I just noticed your newsletter looks presentable in every device. How did you guys do that.? What software should i use?
This is a user-to user forum. I doubt anybody who works on Adobe's newsletters will be responding to this.
That said, I use Dreamweaver to build HTML newsletters. Also, I mainly work in code view since HTML emails are nothing like real web pages.
Thank you, Nancy.
The team that handles the newsletter isn't known to me but I am trying to find out. Will get back as soon as I have an answer.
Did you find the team which creates email newsletters? Does Adobe have an option to create such email newsletters?
If you need a responsive email template in Dreamweaver, go to File > New and select one. See screenshot.
I'm not sure what To answer your 1st question, NO - media queries are not the way to go as most e-mail clients DO NOT read media queries. Also, web e-mail clients like Gmail completely strip header contents from its view before displaying the e-mail so media-queries are useless. There are some apps that do it - but you cant make every subscriber happy that way.
The simple trick is to use fluid layouts. For instance, instead of creating:
And nest elements within it that are fluid instead of carrying a fixed width. This will ensure the e-mail is displayed across devices/ screen sizes consistently.
In the meantime, if you're not aware already, you could use 'Mailchimp' to create beautiful newsletters that just work - they have great 'Forever Free' plans and also have pay-as-you-go plans here: http://www.mailchimp.com - give it a shot.
If you're specific that you want to create them yourself, you could take a look at these 2 links that contain tips & tricks:
And this link that comes from 'Zurb' - the makers of 'Foundation' which is a beautiful front-end framework. They have this tool 'Ink' which does exactly what you're looking for: http://zurb.com/ink/ - it's open-source and free.
