Hello everyone,

Having an issue with Gmail for iPad here. I can’t seem to get a background image to show up . I have tried putting the background=””  on a table that wraps the whole email as specified in the client tips & tricks but have no luck. Has anyone successfully used a background image in this client?

Thanks,

Jon

Jon,

Did you try using a background attribute in your TD? For example:

<td background=“http://www.test.com/test.jpg”> 

 

Note, this fix will not work for Outlook 2007 and 2010 :(

Hi Michelle,

Yes the td background image is what I was using but it was not showing up in my acid test result. I decided after hours of trying different things to send my HTML to a friends iPad 2 and realized the code was working all along. I am not sure why the acid test result is displaying something different…

Thanks,

Jon
