Outlook 2010 Beta

March 30, 2010

Microsoft Outlook 2010 is currently in beta and looks like it contains some useful new features. You can get a list of the changes between Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 here and the new release which is due out in June 2010.

Our friends at Litmus has already begun testing with this new email client and it has been added as one of the preview clients in our full preview.

The good news is that it looks like it renders in exactly the same way as Outlook 2007. The bad news is that this means it is still using the Word rendering engine.

But not all is lost. Litmus also discovered a new feature in Outlook 2010 which may
help users who can't read your email, view an online version instead.

Adding the code below will make Outlook 2010 display a link at the top of the preview pane that says "If there are problems with how this message is displayed, click here to view it in a web browser"

You can achieve this in one of two ways:

Add the below line in your CSS code within the <head> of your html.

    #ForceOutlook2010BrowserLink span { padding: 0px; }
Or add the following at the bottom of your html, just inside the closing </body> tag.

    <span style="padding: 0px;"></span>

Its unclear whether this is officially supported or if its an undocumented feature
which could be removed before the full release.
