How to Create a Responsive Email Template

Reading emails has never been easy on phones and tablets. Just like modern websites, email newsletter design needs to be optimized for different viewports. Imagine having a non-responsive email newsletter design. It might look good on desktop devices; however, checking it on small screens will look awful with each element misaligned and broken columns.

How a false chain email enlisted a writer in the ‘War on Christmas’

The so-called “War on Christmas” has been raging for years now, but so rarely do we hear about the casualties. At Backchannel, tech journalist Steven Levy explains how he was drafted against his will.

“I want to personally thank you for having the courage to share this with the world.”

At the end of every year, Levy explains, he begins receiving a trickle of emails that begin something like this: “Mr. Levy: I want to personally thank you for having the courage to share this with the world.”

What the letters refer to, it seems, is a chain email called “My Confession,” sourced to Levy. The email rants against the Obama White House for using the term “holiday tree” (a false assertion, apparently) and, more broadly, claims the Founding…

Amazon won’t stop sending me someone else’s email

I’m getting someone else’s Amazon email. I don’t know how to make it stop. Someone help me.

Back in September, I received an email from Amazon addressed to someone who shares my last name. It was a receipt for a free Amazon app store download. Mythology Slots – Vegas Free Slot Machines Casino, to be specific.

The email wasn’t spoofed. I wasn’t being phished. This was a plain old automatic blast from Amazon Digital Services. A few hours later, I got a similar email about another of this person’s downloads: Jackpot Party Casino – Slots HD. For simplicity’s sake, let’s use the name Carl.

Unfortunately, Amazon’s automated emails don’t offer any way of unsubscribing from Carl’s receipts or flagging that I’m not the right recipient….

Sony Pictures hackers sent ominous email to executives warning of attack

The group responsible for the catastrophic hack of Sony Pictures warned executives at the company three days before carrying out its attack, according to email evidence discovered by Mashable among the leaked material. This email was reportedly sent to CEO Michael Lynton and chairman Amy Pascal, among others:

We’ve got great damage by Sony Pictures.

The compensation for it, monetary compensation we want.

Pay the damage, or Sony Pictures will be bombarded as a whole.

You know us very well. We never wait long.

You’d better behave wisely.

From God’sApstls

Mashable found the email inside files from the account of Pascal, who apparently didn’t read the message. It’s signed “God’sApstls,” a term said to have appeared in malware used…

Mandrill: An Email Infrastructure Service from MailChimp

Mandrill is an email infrastructure service that started as an idea in 2010. That idea became reality in 2012, when Mandrill cannibalized a crew of MailChimp’s best engineers. Isolated from the rest of the team, they turned the idea from a skunkworks project into a product that outperforms competitor services. Growing fast and innovating faster, Mandrill is now the largest Email as a Service platform on the market, with more than 250,000 active customers.


Use Mandrill to send automated one-to-one email like password resets and welcome messages, as well as marketing emails and customized newsletters. Mandrill is quick to set up, easy to use, and ridiculously stable. We made it for developers, who love documentation, integrations, high delivery rates, webhooks, and analytics. If you’re not comfortable with code and APIs, we recommend finding someone who is before getting started.

Mandrill comes with a beautiful interface, flexible template options, custom tagging, and advanced tracking and reports. Mandrill is the only email infrastructure service with a mobile app that lets you monitor delivery and troubleshoot from wherever you are. It’s also powerful, scalable, and affordable. But you don’t have to take our word for it.

Microsoft may have accidentally announced that it’s buying email app Acompli

Microsoft may have just accidentally announced that it is acquiring email startup Acompli. A post, authored by Microsoft corporate vice president Rajesh Jha, appeared on the company’s official blog today. Titled “blank post please delete,” the post’s body copy gave no information as to its purpose, but its slug — the text in its web address — read “microsoft-acquires-acompli.”

Christopher Nolan doesn’t have an email address

Director Christopher Nolan has a new movie coming out soon: Interstellar, a big budget, original sci-fi film (original, as in, not adapted from any pre-existing novel or comic book property), which hits theaters and IMAXes across the US on Friday, November 7th. I’m excited to see it, as I’m sure many of you are. But until then, you can whet your appetite with a lengthy New York Times Magazine profile of Mr. Nolan, which explores how he came to make a bunch of commercially successfully and critically acclaimed movies over the past two decades: MementoThe PrestigeThe Dark Knight trilogy among them.
