Building responsive emails that render correctly on all the email clients is one of the biggest challenge for email developers now a days; even when the web technologies offer new features for building better websites fast, the majority of the email clients lack support for most of these features. Additional that lack of support, the amount of email clients and their variations (device, web browser and version) is just too high. Fortunately for us – email developers – there are tools out there that allow us to test our emails in different clients, including their variations. Litmus is one of the most famed, offering the possibility to test emails easily, letting you choose which clients you want to target.
