I got work on an interesting project, where my client is a Typographer. He wants to send email to around 15k people on his list, but he wants it to have a font that he has created. Also, it is driven by PHP, since the database is stored in MySql.
Is there anyway to ensure that a lot of people get the emails?
I know for sure that Outlook & Gmail strip out all stylesheets that are linked at the top. I need to work on inline styles to define,
but is it really possible to do that?
Worth the effort?
has anyone done this before?
Hi mihirc, I always stay well
I always stay well away from html email.
Here are a couple of links on @font-face support for email.
Hello Tony, Thank you, saw
Thank you, saw those links and it basically means its not possible to send emails using the font-face family. No other way around?
Like I said I avoid html
Like I said I avoid html email.
The only way I can think of doing it is to use an image
I think the problem is that an email client/reader is not a browser; web-based email services notwithstanding.
An experiment: Use the object element to import an html document, which uses @font-face from your (the client's) web server. Maybe the mimetype would trigger a request to open a browser. Likewise use a link to the real html message. You could also try to import or link to a .doc or an .odt file; though I wouldn't open a .doc, or excel file for that matter, due to well-earned reps as malware vectors.
