1. How prevelant is 2003 Outlook usage?

2. I have designed 2 emails and tested, both very similar, in one everything works, in the other I simply made a copy of the 1st and changed the hero image (same size as orig!) and edited text. But now in the 2nd versions no matter what I do, Outlook 2003 is scaling up the hero image to super large??? Help!

Hey Metexanvt22,

Hope you’re well!

I don’t have the exact usage stats for Outlook 2003 to hand and it changes on a per email basis, but I believe it is a low percentage.

I seem to have fixed this issue by changing the following hero image line of code

<img style="width:100%;min-width:100%; border:0" src="" alt="Portfolio Tasting!" 

to this

<img style="max-width:100%; border:0" src="" alt="Portfolio Tasting!" 

Hope this helps, if you need any more help let me know!
