Can view CSS on emails when opened through Outlook app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We recently had a check with our email functionalities and noted something weird about CSS appearing on mail content. This CSS part is visible when opened through Outlook for windows but not on Online Outlook.

    Please advise.

    Regards,

    Praveen

  • Hi Praveen,

    What’s the format of the email? HTML?

    According to my research, it may be related with Outlook HTML rendering issue. In Outlook 2007 and later version, Outlook uses Word to render HTML emails instead of using Internet Explorer. However, Outlook for Windows has very limited CSS support compared to Internet Explorer, as a result, it could cause some rendering issues.

    Microsoft dropped IE as the rendering engine for security reasons. In this way, we have better control over the active content the rendering engine can display, while if using Internet Explorer to render HTML, it would display everything and could run virus infected email automatically.

    Although this issue cannot be fixed immediately, I'm sure our product teams are working on it. Sorry to bring to this inconvenience to you.

    As a workaround, we can view those messages via Browser. To do this, open the message and go to Message tab > Actions > View in Browser.

    Hope this is helpful to you.

    Regards,

    Perry
