DPI Scaling fix for Outlook 2007-2013

If a user has enabled desktop DPI scaling, due to poor eyesight, or increasingly, as a default setting on new high DPI laptops, you may find that your emails fonts are much larger and tables appearing folded together.

Luckily there is a way to fix this problem in Outlook to make VML and images scale properly. You can place the following markup in the <head> of your emails HTML, and don’t forget to include the XML namespaces!

XML Namespaces:

HTML


  <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml"
xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office">

Outlook Markup:

HTML


  <!--[if gte mso 9]>
   <xml>
    <o:OfficeDocumentSettings>
    <o:AllowPNG/>
    <o:PixelsPerInch>96</o:PixelsPerInch>
    </o:OfficeDocumentSettings>
   </xml>
  <![endif]-->
