Have you wished that you could find a good starting point to build standards compliant HTML emails that will help you avoid the major rendering problems with the most common email clients out there — Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo Mail, etc?
Well, wish no longer! Just get the HTML Email Boilerplate, a well documented starting point for dealing with these issues.
It’s not plug-and-play. You’ll need to do some work to put in your design. But is is a fine place to start and “it will provide some helpful examples and snippets that will keep your email design rendering as true-to-form as possible.”
