Background image for email template

Designing a email template might be tought, as the email template need to be done in table approach not the regular divs , i found that the fatest way to do it with dreamweaver also you could use any editor you may want to use .

Note: i had a problem that i have a background image for the body of the email template if i add it to the css like ( background: url(path) ) that would not work

Note: you could use mail chimp to send test emails and test the emails template u have done ( http://kb.mailchimp.com/article/why-should-i-send-tests-of-my-campaign-it-looks-good-in-the-preview )

the best way i found for solving that is to use the following : http://emailbg.net/

that allow us to to add a background to the email , so

  1. i upload the bg image to my server
  2. replace the link for the bg with mine
  3. put the code prvovided as in the link
