outlook html email formatting

Do NOT use:

  • div (at least not for major markup)
  • style in table tag (it will get applied to all td elements)
  • style in tr tag
  • ol / ul tags if additional formatting is needed (use table with 2 columns instead)


  • table (and tables in tables, etc.)

To be sure:

  • use style to set font-family, font-size with every p and span tag
