  • Sergio Lucas says:

    Hello, what if I wanted to just target all the email clients except for Outlook ? To add specific css rules inside style tag or just add some specific tables for all the other clients ? I tried wrapping the code by :


    {Your css or html here}

    But it doesn’t work and I don’t know the reason

      Hello Sergio,
      To target all other email clients but Outlook, you could try the following snippet which I know of but haven’t yet tested myself.

      Let me know how you get along!
      Kind Regards,

      Hello David , I just wanted to tell you that I could add some specific HTML for all the email clients but Outlook. On the other hand, if I wrapped the style tag with all the css declarations inside the snippet, it doesn’t work . FYI
      By the way, do you know something about BB work css support ? I can’t find information about that.. thank you !

      Hi Sergio,

      Thanks for letting me know, that’s great to hear! Funny enough I had a project this week which also required some elements to be hidden from Outlook clients ^^

      I’m afraid I am not familiar with the support of CSS in BlackBerry Work.

      Kind Regards,

      David

    Ups, it looks like the piece of code is not showing.. I just wrap code by the conditional comment in outlook adding the exclamation mark before “mso” .. FYI

      Thanks for the update!

      Yes, unfortunately the comments don’t want to allow HTML anymore.. I will need to fix that.
