I really enjoy the OCC WEB site. The varied range of tops makes for reading which always strives to enlighten.

 

However, the email I received today was almost unreadable.

1. using medium blue text on a dark blue background makes for almost unreadable messages

2. using light grey text on a white background is also difficult to read.

 

Other than these two issues, email newsletter is O/K.

I'm guessing he's using Yahoo mail, as that has its own style sheet it applies to emails to standardize links.

 

Add the following into the header, where the color code is what you want the links to be (my guess is orange, but I too use Yahoo, so I see blue as well):

<style type="text/css">
.yshortcuts { color:#ffffff }
.yshortcuts a span { color:#ffffff }
</style>

 

If you have different-colored links throughout the email, then you'll have to assign a class to said div and then add that to the above style code as well. For example, if you wanted a "reviews" section to have different color links than the rest of the email, put

class="reviews"

in the div, and then in the style, you'd add

.reviews .yshortcuts { color:#ffffff; }

.

 

Let me know if anything is unclear.

As small change would be to include just a couple more news.

 

4 is a little too little. I know that the mail shouldn't be like 100 pages long, but I guess somewhere between 7-10 would be better.

 

And maybe, for the fun of it, you could add quote of the month or something like that :)

Ya it was supposed to be a test not an offical version.

 

Sorry for you getting an incorrect one. Look for tomorrow to be the proper one :)

I agree with ecofriendly, the newsletter is a little on the small side. A few more of the bigger news stories from the week would be good, otherwise very nicely set up with the new reviews and so on.
