Bullets in HTML email disappearing?

Are you crafting an HTML email to send out and trying to use bullets? If they are suddenly disappearing in Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010, try adding this line of code at the top of your code. Some email clients ignore styles all together, but it will help in others. Also piece of advice, don’t even try using images as a replacement for bullets in an HTML email.

[css]<style type="text/css">
ul, li {margin-top:2px;}

Also, check out this new service from Email on Acid called “Mozify“. Gone are the days of those red X’s on images. Mozify is currently in beta.

Hopefully that helps you out!

    I completely avoid using bullet points in mailers for various reasons. They seem to cause all types of trouble. If possible I create a 2 column table and put an image left hand side to act as the bullet point.
