Absolute positioning in HTML e-mails for Outlook 2007

Thursday, October 2nd, 2008

I couldn’t possibly explain my frustration from Microsoft switching Outlook’s rendering engine to Word so I better not even try. Instead, I’m going to tell you how to make Outlook/Word position elements absolutely.

The idea originally came from doublethink (written in Czech) who made a text field in Word, saved it as HTML and then dug through the mess to extract the essence. I just went a step further and did the same for images as well.
